New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joins the program for the evening. She was praised by Stewart for ber being instrumental in repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell, in passing the 9/11 First Responder's Health Bill, and Food and Safety Bill, to name a few pieces of legislation.
They discuss the passing of the 9/11 health bill behind the scenes, and they have a bit of a lovefest for The Daily Show, in terms of the importance of media attention. But you know what? I don't mind a lovefest here. There has been fundamentally important legislation passed, and I like that there has been continuing coverage of the issues helping to compel legislators to act.
Watch the interview to check out what Senator Gillibrand has to say about changing the rules of the fillibuster. Pretty interestin' stuff. Also, I love to watch Jon Stewart when he has sincere admiration for his guest.
