The Obamas on “60 Minutes”

On for a full hour, President-elect Barack Obama and his wife Michelle helped CBS’ venerable newsmagazine deliver its best ratings since 1999.

I found the sitdown with Steve Kroft to be engaging, especially as the correspondent asked Obama about his plans for stimulating the economy and the comparisons of how to 1932.

Cynthia Littleton of my sister blog On the Air wrote, "The Obamas came off as remarkably relaxed, given everything that’s transpired in the past two weeks. As always, Barack and Michelle exude love and respect for each other and their family in a way that is inspiring, touching and comforting. You want these qualities in a first family."
