Dr. Phil and the president

Lisa de Moraes reviews Dr. Phil's interview with the president and first lady which aired on his show on Wednesday. Based on her partial transcript, it doesn't seem to be much of an interview, filled with pseudo-questions and more blather from the interviewer than answers from the subjects. Somehow I'm not surprised that Dr. Phil seems more interested in promoting his show and his new book than asking the president any real questions (how about "what do you say to parents whose 18-year-old kids are going off to Iraq?"). And what the hell does he mean when he talks about teaching children about loving themselves and "discovering [their] authentic self?"
