Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton-LIVE!

This came out while I was in college.  I thought it was one of the best done performances I had seen.  It also highlights the issues addressed by and viewpoints of some of the leading men in the foundations of the the American Republic.

I like Jefferson's take of the universe -in regards to the first question- as a clock slowly unwinding and that God lets it run through the course of history without interfering in our lives, that was very deep Mr. Jefferson :o. However, I do not like the Clay Jenkinson guy, he is really dull.

i agree sarah, his view is very interesting and that clay jenkins guy confuses me. i thought this is about the 1800's, what the heck is he talking about with the 21st century.

Well Yazan, the video is obviously edited and cut in most parts, and I think what happened was they had asked Clay Jenkinson, as a scholar, not as Thomas Jefferson, what he felt was going to happen to Thomas Jefferson's reputation in the coming years. So, what you saw was his answer to the question. Hope that helps
