Tom Vilsack on national TV

Iowa’s out-going governor has been out making appearances on nationally-distributed programs.  This past week he was on The Charlie Rose Show, which is seen on 200 PBS stations around the country.  You can watch 30 seconds of Vilsack’s appearance in the promotional video on the show’s website or pay to get the whole thing.  I slept through the show when it aired in Iowa.  IPTV schedules the Rose show weeknights at 11:30 p.m.

Vilsack also appeared on The Tavis Smiley Show in late April. (You can read a transcript of the interview at Smiley asked questions about Iowa and whether a Vilsack presidential run would damage the 2008 Iowa Caucuses.  Smiley also criticized Iowa for being 94 percent white and not a very representative state to serve as the start of a presidential campaign.  You can read Vilsack’s reply for yourself, but I’ll give you a hint:  he mentions age diversity.
