What a thoughtful, articulate woman. I was VERY impressed with her answers (and Brian's excellent questions).

Brian Lehrer managed to ask all the right
questions, even difficult questions,
without sounding like Katie Couric,
gouging Mrs. Edwards eyes out.
Brian Lehrer is truly professional interviewer.
I learn something from him everyday.

I hope the program "College for everyone"
takes hold and becomes available to everyone
that has the grades and desires to attend a
college, like NYU, CUNY, The New School, etc.

I would find it very difficult to
vote for Hillary Clinton because of
her uncomprising stance on our invasion
of Iraq and her desire involve us
in yet another attack on another nation,
namely Iran.

Hillary is a hawk, I don't want hawks.

I don't want a President that goes around
bombing nations, based on a pack of lies,
or for the benefit of any other nation,
other than the USA.

I don't respond to programs by e-mail. I just don't have time. But this one was special. It was so refreshing to hear someone who is passionate about their subject, knowledgeable, and who would defend themselves the way this woman did. It was not the calm, nice-nice interview of someone trying to get people to read her book. It was riveting. And it's a subject I'm not even particularly interested in. Great interview, Lennie.

When John Edwards is elected President and travels abroad to build better relationships, will you and children travel with him? Even one Edwards on the campaign trail is exciting, but both you and JRE are dynamite and when you put the children with you...total explosion!
