Presidential Candidates Debate President George H.W. Bush, Governor Bill Clinton (D-AR), and H. Ross Perot met at Washington University in St. Louis for the first of three presidential debates prior to the 1992 presidential election. The debate was moderated by Jim Lehrer and questions were asked by three journalists. The three candidates, standing at separate podia, responded to the questions and rebutted their opponents' statements. Following the debate, they shook hands and mingled with the correspondents and their families. President Bush began his statement by criticizing Governor Clinton’s participation in demonstrations abroad when he was a student at Oxford 23 years ago. Governor Clinton responded that this was a “questioning of his patriotism.” He compared it to “McCarthyism” and referred to how President Bush’s father opposed McCarthy’s tactics. Ross Perot responded that one’s actions as a “senior official in the federal government” were more important than one’s actions in “formative years.” close
