O'Reilly is a populist and a showman.
He'll wait to see which way the wind is blowing before he endorses anyone (IMO).

O'Reilly is a Capitalist -- which separates him from most in the Democrat field.


I think he was an A Current Affair guy who saw Limbaugh and said, "I could do that."

Let's face it, he knew he didn't have a shot at getting the Brokaw, Jennings or Rather chair-- after all, he is doesn't hang out with Ramsey Clark.

Exactly - and he is a rather nonideological populist at that. He is a tough interviewer with an obviously pro-American slant with lots of rhetoric about responsibilty, but that doesn't make him a conservative. I don't see what the big deal is about him.

The experts that appear on Fox are much better than the ones on the majors (John Stossel's program excepted). They even have libertarians on there!

Can't argue with those descriptions.

I've been thinking of him as a frugal liberal(in the modern leftist sense), he wants the BIGFEDGOV to solve all problems, but on the cheap. ;-)

"Populist" - code name for "Leftist", just like the oxymoronic "progressive".
