Advice to the Real News People.

Backdrops for interviews that are not in a fixed setting like this.

A couple back drops could easily carve out a visual space for the interview so that we don't get so to see all the random stuff going on behind the interviewer and interviewee.

As for Obama's Foreign Policy person.

Eh. We all know that you have to have a much more nuanced approach than what Bush/Cheney has done.

It's unlikely any Dem candidate other than Kucinich are going to alternate the traditional non-openly aggresive tone of Dem presidents.
