He's the toast of the talk show scene: Guests from Clooney to Joaquin; From Regis to Drew And Jack Hanna's zoo; Dave's better than shots of caffeine!
Some leading Democrats seem to have a love-hate relationship with the left. Sure, progressives seem to have more influence than ever this year, at least rhetorically.

We all have opinions, biases, inclinations and a personal history that makes us who we are. But we also have free will, intelligence, and the good ol' common sense God gave us to practice good judgment and when necessary, impartiality.
If Brian Williams gets a six-month sentence for misrepresenting his reporting role over and over, George Stephanopoulos deserves nothing less for masquerading as an objective journalist asking ostensibly tough questions.
