Schweitzer on Dobbs again
UPDATE: Here's the transcript. Just search down the page for Schweitzer, its about just more than halfway down.
Gov. Brian Schweitzer will be on Lou Dobbs again tonight. Or if you're on the east coast, Brian Schweitzer was just on Lou Dobbs. This from the Helena Independent Record pretty much says it all on why:
Schweitzer, who dished on Washington politics with Lou Dobbs on CNN two weeks ago, railed against the cozy relationship between politicians and lobbyists, and told viewers that he has to wash the "stink" off every time he leaves the nation's capital.
His candid remarks prompted Americans from all corners of the country to send him e-mails of adoration. Schweitzer will again be on Lou Dobbs' show Thursday, which runs 4 p.m.-5 p.m. MST on CNN.
"Here I am at 80 years old, in love AGAIN!!!" wrote Ruth Guarino of Bishop, Calif. "More power to you — stay honest and you cannot lose. God bless and I am sending a BIG HUG to someone who is one in many million.."
Craig Wilson, a political scientist at Montana State University-Billings, said American's discontent with politics as usual is running high against the backdrop of the war in Iraq. The nation is also divided over President Bush's judicial nominees and his proposals to privatize portions of Social Security.
"He's hit the mother lode of populism here," Wilson said Tuesday. "Yes, it's touched a popular nerve, but it's a stretch to say this means he has a role on the national stage."
Its not simply populism that Schweitzer brings to the table, its the good government is good government ideals that Western Democrats are bringing to the party. Schweitzer goes hand in hand with Harry Reid's talk about reforming Washington DC.
