George Stephanopoulos, Dee Dee Myers and Paul Begala were at the Newseum Monday for a special screening of “The War Room,” as part of Nick Clooney’s Reel Journalism series.

It was a reunion of sorts- “The War Room” is a documentary on President Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign and the organization who ran it, including the three aforementioned.

Some ancedotes via Politico:

“The Lewinsky thing,” said Begala. “That was hard for everybody, and it was hard for me.”

“When I went to Little Rock” to campaign for Clinton, said Myers, “all of my friends thought I was insane. … It seemed like a great adventure. … It was beyond-my-wildest-dreams interesting.”

“You see the huge cell phones, no BlackBerrys, no e-mail,” said Stephanopoulos. “You got pink phone messages throughout the day. We were wearing handsets. … You were on the phone all day long!”
