You won't find me talking about politics here much. I didn't hear tonight's debate. But I did happen to catch Charlie Rose's interview with the President. Originally scheduled to be just 25 minutes, the conversation ultimately took up an entire hour. I thought that Rose did a wonderful job of letting the President explain his policies, his reasons for his decisions. It is so rare to hear civilized discourse of this kind. And rarer yet to be able to hear the President speak, uninterrupted, in such a lengthy, relaxed setting. Yes, he said (alas), "give my chance a plan"... but at least, for what may have been the first time, we got to hear what the plan IS. I'm glad I listened.

PS: If you go to the new and improved Charlie Rose site you will notice that you now have to hit "buy" if you want to view a segment. I thought at first I was going to have to pay. But no. "Buy", in this context (so far, anyhow) simply seems to mean "play".
