Rate and advise Bono on Meet The Press if you watched it. Add Comments please.

I thought Bono was right on target during the interview w Tim Russert.

Bono is articulate and eloquent in his speech and has a strong command of the issues he espouses.

Also he is wise enough to parse his words when needed and offer challenges for the USA to up their ante'

My only advice is that if when is trying to persuade a bloc of ppl i.e. (the conservatives in Washington) he may want to make his appearence more appealing to those he is trying to win over.

More like this:




Less like this:



Having grown up around conservatives, sadly I know how they think.
I offer this as only a suggestion to help him with his cause -to help him increase his milage.

I do hope that somebody passes this on to Bono and he gets to read it.

thoughtfully,

I thought he did a great job, but I went with the "he didn't say anything new and I will continue to support the ONE campaign."

He looked very tired, but he still did a very good job of getting his point across.

I was wondering when someone would get around to posting this in FYM.

I watched it yesterday. I thought Bono did well, although at times it seemed difficult for him to get the exact words that he wanted out. Perhaps that's because he came across a bit fatigued (although quite understandable).

He did a great job explaining what Bush needs to do, but he did it in a positive way. He praised Bush for what he has done so far, but also warned that much more was required if the U.S. was to show its support on the same levels as other countries.

The only thing that bothered me a bit was when they touched upon the rampant corruption that goes on. Bono didn't seem to have a specific answer regarding those countries in question, but then again, who does? I think it is very important that a strategy be developed where aid can be received by those in need directly, thereby foregoing the shady leaders in power. I don't know how that would happen, but there has to be a way.

There must be a way.

He did do a great job, although I don't think he said anything new. However, what he did say was intelligent. Tim Russert will harass anyone who avoids his questions, and Russert didn't have to do any harassing of Bono.

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

I thought Bono was fantastic. I agree that he's looked better.

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!

yes, what is up w this head tilt.
did ali or larry tel lBono he has a good side for the camera or what?

suggestions for future TV pitches to to masses and conseratives that are hoarding the coinage::
1-
Clean Shaven
2-
Shorter hair like in the Beautiful Day video
3-
straight ahead answers into the camera like Adam wood.
4-
take off the damn glasses

Anne,
if Bono can bounce around on stage and pound drums like a posseseds warrior, he can adjust his posture for a half hr intrerview unless there is some phys ailment he has that i dont know about.

if you can enlighten us please do.

Actually there is, he has a bad back, seemingly he has to get injections before concerts. I'm not saying that is definitely the reason but it could be.

I'm just sharing what my impression was. He looked like he was in pain to me.
