In an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, Newsweek general editor Jonathan Darman noted that O'Reilly, in his latest book, Culture Warrior, "champions 'traditionalists' and scolds 'secular progressives,' " and asked O'Reilly: "Are there Democratic traditionalists?" O'Reilly pointed to Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (CT), John F. Kennedy, and Robert F. Kennedy, prompting Darman to respond: "So two deceased Democrats and one who lost his party's primary." O'Reilly then mentioned two other Democrats: "OK, maybe [Sen.] Evan Bayh [IN]. Maybe [Sen.] Barack Obama [IL]. ... But I could be wrong [about Obama] because he's cagey."
From Darman's interview with O'Reilly, in the October 2 edition of Newsweek:
DARMAN: Your book champions "traditionalists" and scolds "secular progressives." Are there Democratic traditionalists?
O'REILLY: Joseph Lieberman, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy.
DARMAN: So two deceased Democrats and one who lost his party's primary.
O'REILLY: OK, maybe Evan Bayh. Maybe Barack Obama. From what I can see of him he does have traditional beliefs. But I could be wrong because he's cagey.
