Jon Stewart interviews Lynne Cheney (the Vice President's wife):
The first part was kind of standard, comfortable, interview questions. The second part... just wow. I have to give Jon Stewart kudos for being an excellent diplomat/journalist. I'd love to hear other peoples' reactions in the comments.

Myself, I hope that he can be convinced to run for President one more time. In part, this is because I am unimpressed with the current selection of candidates. More significantly, it's because I have come to genuinely admire and respect Al Gore.
