Allen Guelzo on the Daily Show

Allen Guelzo talks about his book Lincoln and Douglas: The Debates that Defined America on Jon Stewart’s "Daily Show". Informative and hilarious. Stewart’s set-up questions are just too funny: e.g., a query about the role of technology in the debates. Enjoy!

It was a delightful exchange between jovial intellectual and comedian. Guelzo did his best to relate it to today's political debates and inform the audience without being a pedantic professor. Guelzo reminds me a bit of Kelsey Grammar.

Allen did very well but I must say that I wish he had worn his Civil War cap that he is so fond of.
