high praise for Martha Raddatz's book


Martha Raddatz was on This Week this morning, and George Stephanopoulos gave her book The Long Road Home a ringing endorsement! He said it was "terrific." Martha looked so pleased. Her first book, it is about a crucial battle in Iraq in 2004 and also follows up on the American soldiers who fought it coming home. I wish so much I had time to read it.

I thought I heard George Will use the pronoun "him" for Ann Coulter.

George S has a cough. If I could afford it, I'd send him some tea. He is precious and needs to be treated with great care, his voice especially.
