Jon Stewart On The Presidental Election In 2008

Jon Stewart had this comment on the upcoming field for the Republican presidential ticket in 2008:

2008—the field’s already getting crowded with candidates. Everyone knows about Hillary and McCain, but who else has a shot? On the Republican side, Rudy Giuliani. Hero. 9/11. Time’s person of the year. Member of the comb-over club. But also a member of the New York, divorced, pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-stem cell research, gay-friendly wing of the Republican Party. I’m sorry, did I say wing? I meant room. Did I say room? I meant corner. Did I say corner? I meant table — for one.
