Reason TV: Virginia Postrel on Oscar Glamour, Chris Christie, and Whether J.Lo Could be Obama's Mentor

"We know way too much about Bill Clinton," and that's why—as charismatic as he may be—the former president just isn't glamorous. So says Virginia Postrel, Editor-in-chief of and columnist for The Wall Street Journal.

Postrel, formerly the editor of Reason, sat down with's Ted Balaker to discuss Oscar glamour, the ascent of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and whether J. Lo could be President Obama's glamour mentor. (This Saturday check out Postrel's column for more on Oscar-style glamour.)
