DNC ’08: FBNY Gets Its Fix With Chris Cillizza

Back at the DNC last Thursday, just prior to Obama’s INVESCO speech (a time and place that currently feels about a million years ago, and an oasis of non-police presence away) FBNY was lucky enough to find itself taking advantage of the kindness of the WaPo press tent and sharing a table with the inimitable Chris Cillizza (The Fix is a longtime favorite).

We asked him a whole bunch of questions about how this year’s convention chalked up to previous ones, how Bill Clinton’s oratorial skills compared to Obama’s, what Hillary’s future may hold for her, and, of particular interest at the moment, how Gustav might effect RNC coverage. Because we happened to be sharing camera time with Eat the Press’ Rachel Sklar we decided to do a ‘pool report.’ The video in full is above, The part where Cillizza talks about Gustav begins around 8:06.
