Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter on How the Presidency Affected Their Family

Aired on 06/05/1987 | CC tv-pg
The president of the United States is unlike any job in the country. Not only are you on-call 24/7, 365 days a year, your job performance is being watched and evaluated by hundreds of millions of people. There's no way such a life couldn't have a significant impact on your family.

Watch as Oprah, in the first season of The Oprah Winfrey Show, sits down with former President Jimmy Carter and first lady Rosalynn to discuss how they dealt with the spotlight, in both the Oval Office and the family kitchen.
