    When I lived in California in the '80s, there was a similar talk show interviewer in KABC, Michael Jackson. He had a way of getting his guests to talk, then getting out of the way to let them. He had a way of punctuating silences with "Yes" and "Uh-huh" just to let you know he was still there and still interested, but he was there to listen, not direct the conversation.
    Nice. As a former Angelino, I remember listening to Michael Jackson with great enjoyment, as an excellent interviewer, his refined and classical sounding voice had breading and class. So true about his way of getting out of the way of his guests. Fond memories. Glad to see his name mentioned.

    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Stewart wins by a small margin - I think so too. I tend to get tired of repeated formats, but Colbert probably contributed to that I am now following the show to a lesser extent than before.

    I watch Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah for their political satire and commentary. For sheer entertainment value, I like Ellen Degeneres.
