She is also very defensive about David Letterman. She has a crush on him.
She seemed to be very positive about Castro too. They bring that up on the show sometimes. Why so chummy?
If you are in her good graces, great, but if not, watch out. Did you see how she was appeared to still be angry at Peter Jennings when his widow came on the show? I thought it quite odd to take him to task with his widow. She wasn't responsible for Peter giving Barb a hard time many years ago.
Perhaps Barb anticipates Palen will run for president next term and she wants to ensure her spot for another interview.
