    (Texas Tribune CEO) for asking a series of smart follow-up questions, once Anita Perry mentioned a woman's right to choose.

    Smith went out of his way to clarify: "Mrs. Perry, I want to be sure that you didn't just inadvertently make news," he said as an audience looked on. "Are you saying that abortion is a woman's right, to make that choice?"

    Sensing a political misstep, the first lady tried to get back to the script, referring to abortion as a state's issue.

    "Right," Smith pressed. "But your personal point of view is that it's a person's decision within the law to make that choice?"

    I watched the footage the other day, and was completely impressed by his work.

    Somebody send the tape to Chuck Todd.

      Actually the list could go on and on and on.

      But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, ... there are few die well that die in a battle; ... Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; — Shakespeare, ‘Henry V’
