Bill O'Reilly - Hillary Clinton interview

O'Reilly's sit-down with Clinton was the most substantive, issue-oriented interview I've seen all year. I think every other reporter who's ever been given one-on-one access to a presidential candidate can learn from it. He had a relaxed, respectful manner. He engaged her, he reworded questions if she tried to dodge, but if she wriggled after the same question three times, he moved on. Meanwhile, she put forth actual plans and policies. Whether or not anyone who watches agrees with them, they now have specifics in front of them on what she plans to do.

He's hyping his John McCain interview; I'll be interested to see if he can match what he did this week.
