Ronald Reagan on 'There You Go Again,' Other Notable Debate Moments

Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of former President Ronald Reagan and begins a yearlong celebration of his life and legacy. In honor of the occasion, here is an extended excerpt of a 1989 interview with Jim Lehrer in which he explains the backstory behind some of the highlights -- and low points -- of his presidential debates in 1980 and 1984, including his "There you go again" and "youth and inexperience" quips. The interview was part of the "Debating Our Destiny" series. And also, be sure to check out the "Nancy Reagan, Role of a Lifetime" documentary, produced by MacNeil-Lehrer Productions, which starts to air Friday and will be broadcast Sunday on most PBS stations.
