Statesman vs. Spin Doctor

I have a dirty secret today. After the SOTU, I took some time to relax, kick back, and watch the coverage on CNN. During Anderson Cooper, David Gergen faced off with Ari Fleischer. Now, typically on cable news the debates are either enraged shouting matches or what seems like a preplanned exchange of talking points. This one was different. Ok, half of it was different. Fleischer seemed to think this was just an ordinary exchange, but Gergen had other plans. A transcript can’t really do this any justice, so please, go and watch this.
