Q: What did you think about the criticism about Gwen Ifill writing a book with Obama’s name in the title?
Schieffer: You know, I thought that was a little bit of a bad rap. I mean — and all I know about this is what I’ve literally read in the papers, but it’s my understanding this book is still in manuscript. It hasn’t even been set in type yet. She’s about in the middle of it and as it was explained to me, this is not a book about Barack Obama; it’s a book about black politicians and the gains they have made in recent years. So I thought that was a little bit of an unfair charge against her.
