Gwen Ifill and Jon Stewart

Tonight on Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" (on Comedy Central), the scheduled guest is journalist and broadcaster Gwen Ifill, moderator and managing editor of the PBS show "Washington Week" -- I love watching that show and I love Gwen!!! Her new book, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, has recently been released in paperback. The Breakthrough sheds light on the impact of Obama's presidential victory and introduces several emerging young African American politicians, drawing on Ifill's interviews with prominent leaders, including Colin Powell, Vernon Jordan, Jesse Jackson, and President Obama. Publisher's Weekly called the book "a stellar analysis of the black political structure and its future in American politics."
