Leave 'Em Laughing
Al Gore announced he wouldn't run for president right after he hosted Saturday Night Live. Now Carol Moseley Braun is withdrawing from the race just a day after she appeared on The Daily Show. Politicians used to go on TV to advance their political ambitions; these days those ambitions look like an excuse to appear on their favorite TV shows.
I had planned to wrap this up with a link to the Daily Show interview (where Moseley Braun actually came off pretty well), but I can't find it online. That's OK; watch this instead.
