Semi-Retirement's For Pussies
Mike Wallace is a journalist who just happens to be Jewish, rather than a Jewish journalist. At least in the mind of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's Zionist-hating, Holocaust-doubting president/Hezbollah best pal.
Which is why Wallace nailed an interview with Ahmadeinejad after cooling his heels for a week in Tehran, always lovely this time of year.
A preview of that chat will be on Thursday's CBS Evening News, followed by a longer session on "60 Minutes," which gets woken out of its summer repeat slumber with this scoop.
Wallace told the AP's Dave Bauder that Ahmadeinejad came across as "more rational than I had expected."
Israel might beg to differ on that account.
