I caught up with Peter Jennings and George Stephanopoulos as they made their way their broadcast location, I asked them what they thought of the President’s speech.
Aylward – Gentlemen, can I ask you what you thought of the Presidents speech.
Jennings I thought the last six paragraphs were terrific. You know I was just saying to George, it was an hour speech and the last 6 were six paragraphs great.
Aylward – “What did you think about the President showing emotion?“
Stephanopoulos – That’s what was so powerful. It was clearly real.
There you have it. Even the pundits at ABC were impressed.
