Barack Obama vs. John Stewart

The interview of Barack Obama by John Stewart on The Daily Show was the best political interview I have ever seen.

Here are a few reasons why:
  • Both men are very intelligent and well spoken
  • Stewart asked difficult questions, even though they are on the same political side
  • Both men listened to what the other was saying (rather than using the time to think of what they wanted to say next)
  • Neither was trying to manipulate the conversation to their best advantage or against the other
Overall, an interesting, informative and civil political conversation. Why aren't there more of these in the media?
