I am sick and tired of hearing about the "performances" of Vice President George Bush and anchorman Dan Rather. This was not an entertainment show; these two men were not Don Johnson and Tom Selleck competing for "best actor." It was a newsman asking a man who would be President a vital question--and Bush was evasive.
I don't care if Rather was bombastic, surly or rude. He asked the question. I don't care if Bush was clever or performed "unwimpingly." He did not answer the question. Let's judge the whole interview on that.
