The Rise (Again) of Katie Couric

Most people wrote her off a year ago but she kicked ass this week with her Sarah Palin interviews that hopefully will be a turning point in people's assessment of her capacity (or incapacity) to lead. Then she scored McCain when he ran away from David Letterman to clean up Sarah's mess. Katie actually looked sorry for Sarah as she had to give her clues to complete sentences. I bet the campaign thought that Katie would be an easier interview for Palin, since she's a woman who's been given a hard time by the media herself.

Lesson of the week: don't underestimate Katie.
