Oh, probably not, if by "best person" you mean the most articulate, engaging and authoritative-sounding spokesperson available. But it's common enough with bills like this for a well-known victim of the relevant crime to become "the face" of the drive to pass the bill. And in principle at least, this works well both for interviewers wanting a surefire attention-getter, and for victims who feel compelled to help prevent what happened to them from happening to others.

I have some problems with Nancy Grace but that guy who abducted her should have car battery wires attached to his balls.

I didn't hear about this so I was in the dark. I vividly remember the Elizabeth Smart thing cuz I'm from Utah.

I think that they should do that bamboo torture thing where the bamboo grows through you and practice it on her abductors.

What's the bill Elizabeth Smart is supporting?

I don't know who Nancy Grace is but, she sure made herself look like an idiot.

After everything that young woman has gone through, I'd think you'd be a little more compassionate. I teach kids her age, and I can't imagine how nervous they'd be on television with a reporter trying desperately to get them to relive such an ordeal. I'm 29 years old and would probably sound like a space cadet too if I had to answer those questions when I didn't want to.

It's a bill for a national sex offender registry.

And Nancy used to be a passionate tireless advocate for victims and I admired her so much for that. Sadly she has now become a caricature of her former self-for ratings purposes I guess. She acts like she's on Fox News.

Then it would make sense that neither HeartlandGirl nor Elizabeth Smart go on camera. The person lacking in compassion is the one who pushed her into the studio.

Well that would be her father I assume, he was there with her. I hope he has nothing but the best intentions- to use her ordeal in order to help other kids, and to prevent other awful incidents. I think that could be done without subjecting Elizabeth to interviews, but hopefully that is being strictly controlled. I think perhaps he thought Nancy would be sensitive to that and she seemingly wasn't.

Would it have been easier to pretape Smart's comments instead of tossing her on camera? If she is being used as a spokesperson, it seems logical to discuss her ordeal to give people context as to why she is the one on camera.

I don't see what the big deal is. Yes, Nancy Grace continued to ask questions that Smart had said she didn't want to talk about. But all Smart did was say "I don't appreciate that". It's not like she opened up a can of Whoop Butt on her.

yes, because that's what people in a civilized society do, they torture people who do bad things, because revenge is cool and fun and it makes us so much better than the perpetrators.

in a perfect world, maybe, but the juggling of live television doesn't allow everyone to be as prepared and buttoned up as we'd like them to be. i think it's clear that ES was railroaded by NG and wasn't about to play along, and, really, do we need to hear her talk about her ordeal again? unless Nancy Grace wanted to milk a just a little bit more outrage from Elizabeth, let us all relive just out OUTRAGED we are when we hear about pretty, white, skinny, blond things who play the harp getting abducted from their homes. just OUTRAGE! can you feel the ANGER!?!?!?! OUTRAGE!!!!!!
