He did look tired, but what with being all over the place the last few months, I wouldn't blame him. Get some rest, Bono !

(Rumsfeld, on the other hand, avoided every question, and I enjoyed watching Russert make fun of him. )

Hehe, I noticed that with Rumsfeld, too . But you're right with Bono, Tim didn't do that with him. As for the corruption question and stuff, it is a bit hard to have an answer, yeah, because corrupt people don't want to change their ways, so all the nice suggestions in the world could just go in one ear and out the other. Doesn't mean that Bono won't still try to stop that, though.

All in all, a very interesting show. Bono gave credit where credit was due, but also did point out the areas where work is still needed. I honestly don't know how this guy keeps up with all the stats and everything on this issue.

Also, okay, so how exactly is all this stuff next week gonna work-we've got the concert this upcoming weekend, and then what is it now that's taking place a week from Wednesday? And I recall something about a series of events...so how long is all this stuff together gonna last then?

DIAMOND I have to say you are right even though I hate to admit it...but Bono was still great with his straght forward answers and he is still sexy to me ...even though he was looking a bit wore out

^ ditto that. If I were Ali, I'd attack him with clippers and a shaver in his sleep and tidy him up. I'm a huge fan of Bono, but not a big fan of his current image. It's too rough and unkept and really is making him look older than he is (the dark shades over his eyes, slicked back thinning hair, extremely dark colored clothing...bleh).

Something a little more like this, but w/ a LIGHT colored dress shirt or suit ensemble would be a bit more marketable, IMO:



That said, I have yet to see the interview in question...

Probably. I think he looks wonderful on stage, but the shades, the slicked hair, the dark black/red/purple clothes, the scruffy face....just doesn't translate well into proper business and PR attire, dear Bono. I actually told my boyfriend last week I'm going to write TLC and demand a celebrity episode of What Not To Wear with Bono as my nominee!

Sorry, I know this has nothing to do with the beef of the interview, but you can't say these things in PLEBA!

On a sorta related note, there's a guy I talk to on another board who'd seen the show last night, too, and he really liked what Bono had to say . He was quite impressed by him.

I think he looked like he was bracing himself - like he was in a lot of pain. I also thought his breathing sounded laboured. I'm amazed that he pushes himself and shows up no matter how he feels. If you pray, pray that Bono feels better quickly!
I was going to say the same thing
I kepy mentioning to my dad while we were watching it that it looked like he was having back pain again
he was tilted the whole time and looked like he was in an invisible body cast
But he was still effing hot
Ive heard everything he said already, but I think its important that he get the main points across because the rest of the world isnt as bonosteeped as we are

Yeah Bono knows his politics...I just hope and pray that sweet man feels better so he can dress himself up a bit better...I love the way he looks in a suit.

Exactly. And agreed, Carmelu2fan. If he is tired or feeling ill or something, I hope he does take a bit of time and get all alert and up to speed again and everything.

Do U2 have any concerts this week before the Live 8 show? If not, Bono should take some of that time and get in a nice nap or two.

Or maybe he was feeling well and it was just the lighting or an uncomfortable chair or something, too . Who knows.
