US election clippage: part three

It’s now 1992, and Dan Rather is wondering whether it’s “hasta la vista” for George Bush.

“This is the hour of prayer” he intones rakishly, after joshing with a reporter in the field who’s got news of Bill and Chelsea Clinton stopping off for “a glass of water” at a “McDonalds stand”.

It’s a more assured performance than before, though at times Dan looks like he’s trying to stop swallowing his own tongue. The theme tune is fantastic, and there’s also a bit where the camera cuts back to our man a bit too early to hear him complaining “No! No!”

Apparently Alaska may go for Ross Perot. Oh, and Texas is the equivalent of “a huge taco”.
