Tony Blair on The Daily Show

I have tremendous admiration for Jon Stewart's interview technique - especially when he's up against politicians and the like. I could watch him interviewing Blair for hours; it seems so rare for someone (at least in American television - and even in the UK, Paxman isn't as personable as Stewart is and always puts people on the defensive) keep asking the same queston until they get an answer, instead of just rolling over at the first soundbite. It's just a shame that the Daily Show only has five to ten minutes for these interviews.
