Who had the harder interview tonight on “60 Minutes?” Scott Pelley during his profile of NFL MVP Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers — we learned he’s quite sensitive about his height, and doesn’t want to talk much about the bounty scandal — or Steve Kroft who sat down with Senate leaders Harry Reid (D-NV) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY)? If you ask Kroft, he did. Exasperating is one way to put it. Here’s Kroft talking about it in “60 Minutes Overtime.”

While two GOP politicians top the list, a couple tvnewsers are among GQ’s “50 Most Powerful People in Washington.” NBC’s Chuck Todd and Fox News’s Charles Krauthammer made the cut.
1) Eric Cantor
2) Mitch McConnell
3) David Plouffe
4) Leon Panetta
5) Hillary Clinton
19) Chuck Todd: “Through sheer ubiquity alone, Todd might be the most important political journalist working today. Throw in the fact that he’s widely liked, not at all flashy, and smart as hell, and it’s no contest.”
45) Charles Krauthammer: “[H]e’s a fixture at liberal stonings on Fox News. His tone-setting attacks against the administration caused the National Review to pen a love letter titled “Critic-in-Chief.”
FNC analyst Karl Rove is also on the list, clumped in with Steven Law and Ed Gillespie at #13. And CBS News president David Rhodes makes the list along with his brother Ben, Pres. Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser, at #20.
