Quick Takes: Given the reticence of Rep. Gary Condit, was there some other tactic Connie Chung should have employed when interviewing him?

“Short of a gun barrel and a tire iron, I don’t think Connie Chung could have done a better job. It’s easy … to think of other follow-up questions; for example, he kept saying, `I made mistakes.’ OK, name one … But Connie was focused and properly probing.”

“I think Connie did the best she could-a very difficult job to do in only 30 minutes. By going back to the same issue again and again (his relationships with women), she caught him in lies which will probably end his career and perhaps even lead to a break in the case.”

“She tried several times, and she came in from different directions. I think it was just clear that he wasn’t going there. We saw him repeat the same line over and over … I don’t think it would have mattered who interviewed him or what questions they asked.”
