Nobody does commercial TV out of the goodness of their heart. There has to be a market-driven financial incentive, an economic imperative. Katie was wildly successful for so long, she created a market incentive. It made economic sense for CBS.
Whatever their motivations, lawmakers on both side of the aisle have certainly discovered that immigration is one of those issues that resonate strongly with the public.
There seems to be more abiding interest in unearthing old memos abroad than there is here.
The theme with Hillary Clinton is, she wants to know where the outrage is. And we've found where the outrage is. It's in Howard Dean.
The people who are the most unhappy with Howard Dean are Washington Democrats who would never have seen him as Democratic Party chairman anyway.
On immigration, there are a lot of hurdles before anything arrives at the White House.
Journalists are accused of being lapdogs when they don't ask the hard questions, but then accused of being rude when they do. Good thing we have tough hides.
Hope springs eternal, even in politics.
History shows that people often do cast their votes for amorphous reasons-the most powerful among them being the need for change. Just ask Bill Clinton.
Folks who are getting their strokes in the South are not as unhappy with Howard Dean. You don't see anybody starting any movement to get him out of office.
Don't count on the Republicans to allow themselves to be split as severely on this issue as Democrats hope. They know the votes they need.
A lot of Democrats are not that upset with Howard Dean. Howard Dean gets out here and he says these inflammatory things, and he doesn't apologize. He doesn't back down a little bit.
I'm a preacher's kid, and we were always told, Act right all the time, because someone's always watching.
Tony Blair barely escaped this year, and now George W. Bush, if elections were to be held today, would be in a serious challenge as well.
We will wait to see if it is a doozy before we decide how to cover it, and what it all means.
It's been years, decades, since a president has lost a major trade initiative. That would be bad headlines.
I'm happy to break down barriers and be a role model, but I don't want that to be the only thing people talk about. At some point, you have to move past it... . I try not to play into it. I've had this job for a while.
Did I say that the President's entire job is image management Of course not.
At public broadcasting, we call commercial broadcasting the dark side. We have the luxury of time, of not having those ever- looming commercial interruptions. We take ourselves pretty seriously. Some people say that's not a good thing. I think it's great.
If you start to catalog Hillary Clinton's positions between now and 2008, we're going to have a lot of conversations because there are a lot of places for her to go.
Picture perfect. Part Spider-Man, part Tom Cruise, part Ronald Reagan. The President seized the moment on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific.
Can't disagree with the need for a grasp of history.
You would like me to say that the veil will be ripped from the voters' eyes sometime between now and November, thereby restoring the proper version of Democracy to the House and Senate. I won't say that, of course. The simple reason is, I don't know.
