The execs at MSNBC sure hope so. She's quirky without being infantile, informed without being bookworm boring, and wholly intelligent without being intellectually condescending. She's Rachel Maddow, now on 5 nights a week somewhere other than just AM ( radio, not morning. I doubt she even gets up that early). Can MSNBC's new Princess Leia help a growing network tamp down on it's growing internal conflicts? Only time will tell. However, one thing's for sure - we will all love watching her navigate the finicky world of visual media on more than a guest host basis with enthusiasm, confusion, and laughter. Guest punditry by Pat Buchanan and all.
