O'Reilly is a populist, first and foremost. He is an independent thinker and rather bright (degrees from Boston University and Harvard University). He confounds critics with his divergent viewpoints (ie: tough on crime but opposes death penalty). I find he is at his worst when he is bullying his guests, but at his best with a equivocating bureaucrat (ie: United Nations type) or politician- forcing them to either answer the question or look ridiculous. I highly doubt he will endorse Kerry. But I don't see him being an unquestioning lackey for Bush either.
I like O'Reilly when he trashes the Europeans--lately that is all he has been good at.
No one bashes Chirac and Chretien ( A European- Canuck) as well as Bill.
I think O'reilly's a closet conservative who tries to "look" independent by attacking conservatives on occasion. Unfortunately, he attacks Republicans over the silliest issues which just makes him look stupid.
