Ana Marie Cox, former Washington Editor of Radar, conducted a long interview with CBS News political analyst-turned-McCain-Palin campaign advisor Nicolle Wallace for Tina Brown and Barry Diller’s Web site, The Daily Beast. (The Observer‘s Felix Gillette spoke with Ms. Wallace earlier this month.)
Early on, Ms. Wallace jokes that she walks her dog, Lily, "in Central Park with a group of wonderful, flaming liberals who I love and I love their dogs," but soon enough, Ms. Cox gets down to some serious questioning:
Asked to name her role models, Ms. Wallace listed former Clinton White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry, former Bush White House Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Karen Hughes, Counsel to the President Dan Bartlett, all around fun guy Karl Rove, George W. Bush 2004 re-election campaign manager Ken Mehlman, and, finally, her old boss Katie Couric, saying "talk about grace under fire."
