Obama on O’Reilly: “It Was Great”

oreilly_9-5.jpgPart one (of four!) of the much anticipated Bill O’Reilly interview with Sen. Barack Obama aired last night, and focused solely on foreign policy.

The other three parts of the interview air Monday-Wednesday next week.

But with the full interview in the can, the New York Post reports, “Despite talk of bad blood between the Democratic nominee and the broadcaster, Obama seemed positively upbeat after Thursday’s sitdown with O’Reilly.”

“It was great,” said Obama about the interview.

The New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley writes about the short interview as well. “Their tone was civil, but thankfully not too civil,” she writes.

She also groups O’Reilly in with a group of interviewers who are, “best at goading subjects into unplanned sincerity.” Included in her list — Katie Couric and Chris Wallace.
