The Daily Kerry


When John Kerry decided it was time to do his first national TV interview since the Swift boaters for Bush launched their attack on the senator’s Vietnam War record, he did not choose CBS’s “60 Minutes,” ABC’s “Nightline” or “NBC Nightly News.”

Kerry picked Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” where he will appear tonight in an extended interview.

Now I bet you feel terrible that you dismissed as fools those TV critics who, back in July, collectively crowned “The Daily Show” the year’s best news and information program. I know I do.
