Kay Bailey Hutchison Analyzes Crazy Senators With Jon Stewart (VIDEO)
Matt | On 02, May 2013
Former Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison appeared on The Daily Show on Monday night to promote her new book “Unflinching Courage: Pioneering Women Who Shaped Texas.”
Once she explained a bit of the premise behind her book to Jon Stewart, the interview got interesting. Stewart pressed her on issues dealing with the Senate and why compromise doesn’t seem to be a part of the Republican plan. He also needled her successor, Sen. Ted Cruz, and some of the wacky comments he has made in just a few short months. Stewart also took a swipe at Sen. Mitch McConnell for leading the charge to oppose everything with President Obama’s name on it.
The most interesting thing for me was how Hutchison tried to dance around specific mentions of the senators who are holding up progress. On her face you could see how uncomfortable she was, but that she knew Stewart was telling the truth.
Hutchison wrapped by saying she doesn’t miss the Senate at all. Her faces already told us that throughout the discussion. lol..
