Caution Advised When The Camera Is On
It just goes to show, that you have to be really careful with your words when the camera is rolling. You could have a hot microphone, or things might come back to haunt you years later. This is especially relevant if you are a politician, because the opposition will put together a team that will analyze absolutely every comment you've ever said on video. If you've made diametrical statements, they are going to find it and they will use it against you! This has been especially useful for McCain's team to assemble a video of Obama flip-flopping on his war stance where it appears he has been for and against particular issues within a relatively short period of time.
