"The word I always use for David is 'gracious'" says Cokie Roberts . . . "I think that's a lot of what the viewers respond to too. There is that sense that they're in the hands of a gentleman and that no matter how obstreperous the rest of us get, he will make sure it's all OK in the end."--From LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 28, 1996
