It’s not often that I can say that the funniest moment on TV last night happened on CNN…but it did. While I was watching CNN’s political coverage, moderator Anderson Cooper was asking political strategist Donna Brazile about a conversation she had last night with Senator Barack Obama. When Cooper pressed her from some inside scoop, we had this great exchange. So funny!
Anderson Cooper: Did he tell you in that phone conversation, that you had privately with him, about how he plans to do that? How he plans to reach out? How he plans to unify?
Donna Brazile: Of course he’s told everyone that he plans to sit down with Senator Clinton at the right time…”
Anderson Cooper: I’m looking for something he hasn’t told anyone else…just you.
Donna Brazile: Anderson, you’re not my boo.
Anderson Cooper: I wanna be your boo. [pause and laughter] I don’t really even know what that means.
[Brazile looks at her watch]
Donna Brazile: Anderson, are we still on TV?
Anderson Cooper: Yes we are
Donna Brazile: Well, I think I better watch my words
Anderson Cooper:I’m not sure that means exactly….someone can explain it to me later.
