  1. Maybe Saddam will be able to tell him what the frequency is.

  2. I am sure that once we see this interview, we will understand that Saddam really is just a misunderstood fellow who just wants to be loved.

    Seriously, I will be interested to see how Rather and 60 Minutes II presents the material. He will likely be accorded all the respect given to any other world leader, despite the fact that he hardly is deserving of such.

  3. I wonder if Rather will treat him better than he treated the first Bush

  4. I’m pretty confident that Rather will treat him better than he’d treat any Republican (or Libertarian, for that matter).

  5. I’m pretty confident that Rather will treat him better than he’d treat any Republican (or Libertarian, for that matter).

  6. Should be interesting: “Dear Saddam, been on vacation anywhere recently?”

    Let’s hope the interview isn’t as toe-curling as the recent one conducted by retired British MP Tony Benn, which was so supine as to be a total joke.

  7. What they really need to do to boost ratings is have a dual Michael Jackson/Saddam Hussein interview. Now that would be something that would reach all sorts of demographics.
