lady lynn on palin persuasiveness
I love when she does interviews on Cavuto. For one thing, he lets people TALK - unlike a lot of interviewers. He lets people make their point. And two, because she so clearly makes her point. She lays things out so clearly.

Cavuto amazes me. He has pretty severe MS and has to memorize most of his script.

Doctors marvel at his MRI scans because they indicate a man unable to walk or talk. Yet while he sometimes has difficulty doing both, the Fox News anchor is remarkably fit, exercising on a stationary bike and treadmill to stave off muscle atrophy of the legs, a common problem in MS patients. Cavuto, 48, has the secondary progressive form of the disease, meaning it steadily worsens over time.

He has fatigue, headaches, trouble walking, some vision loss, and -- occasionally -- hoarseness. "Having difficulty talking isn't good in my profession, but my wife welcomes it," jokes the anchor, who memorizes scripts for his program, Your World With Neil Cavuto, in case he can't read the teleprompter during taping.
