Jon Stewart Invests in Some Time with EPA Director Lisa Jackson

Okay it's not as funny as the incredible side splitting interview with TARP's Elizabeth Warren which I ended up forwarding to close friends, but...isn't it incredible that Jon Stewart has the head of the EPA on his show? She says nothing earth shattering, but that, of course, is probably by design. Anyway, it's fun to see what Stewart does with the ball - because it's mostly his. Lisa gives nothing away.

Jackson hails from New Orleans, got her master's at Princeton, and formerly served as the head of environmental protection for New Jersey. Critics says Jackson followed too many Whitman-era administration policies and is "a pliant technocrat who will follow orders." (Grist published a fairly decent, balanced overview of environmentalists' pros and cons about her appointment.)

In the meantime, see what you think of her appearance on the show last night (and feel free to comment below).
