The Reno Gazette-Journal has done something absolutely remarkable.  They have conducted hour-long interviews with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, making them available for viewing on their website. 

These interviews are outstanding examples of American journalism.  What we are able to see in these interviews has never quite been revealed in other formats.  Both Clinton and Obama are thoughtful, creative thinkers.  When they speak about the challenges we face, they each speak in a voice of authentic leadership. 

They are very different, as we can see.  But they both come across as pragmatists.

In his interview, for example, Obama reveals himself as a largely dispassionate, open-minded pragmatist. 

In her interview, Clinton reveals herself as more impatient pragmatist.

What we see in these long conversations are two candidates who put pragmatism--getting things done--ahead of ideology. 

Fascinating.

Go take a look.
