I won’t say too much (I’ve got a column on the topic in the works), but I just want to register a disagreement: I don’t think Rudy’s Libby answer made him look like a primadonna, James. I think it was great — he was clear, in command of the facts, and when Blitzer tried to cut him off he reminded everyone that he doesn’t get pushed around — he does the pushing. Granted, the line between “assertive” and “rude” can get fuzzy, so I suppose it’s a matter of taste.
