Bravo to NBC News for doing separate interviews with President Obama (Savannah Guthrie) and Governor Romney (Brian Williams) on their education policies and philosophies.
There have been precious few interviews with the presidential candidates as substantive, deep, interesting, and far reaching as these on ANY topics all campaign long.
And what’s additionally great about these interviews is that they well illustrate a reality of Obama and Romney that has been largely masked in this superficial campaign: both these guys are policy wonks who can talk fluidly about many areas of public policy, including education.
