Washington
Huffington and Matalin give perspective on politics
WASHINGTON (3/2/11)--Arianna Huffington and Mary Matalin come from opposite ends of the political spectrum but they agreed more than disagreed during a joint appearance Tuesday before the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference here. Huffington is co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, and Matalin is a political contributor for CNN. In response to questions, both said President Barak Obama misjudged the mandate of his lop-sided presidential victory in 2008. “The president miscalculated about the death of the right and did not respond to the need for jobs,” said Huffington, the liberal commentator. Matalin, a conservative pundit, said voters were “largely satisfied with health care…but Obama thought he would translate his popularity into policy.” Matalin and Huffington became dear friends, they said, when their teenage daughters developed a friendship. Both stressed during the GAC appearance the need for the nation to return to the ideals of the country’s founding fathers.
