Andrew Sullivan: Soul Conservative

On C-SPAN's show Q&A, Andrew Sullivan discusses his book "The Conservative Soul: How We Lost It, How To Get It Back", but really, this is just the starting point for a very interesting interview.

He touches on his thoughts on Conservatism, Catholicism, his own religious faith, political philosophy, being in a committed relationship (with a man), dealing with being HIV-positive for 13 years, why he endorsed Kerry in 2004, and other topics.

Interviewer Brian Lamb asks simple, penetrating questions, and lets Sullivan do the talking. (Many interviewers could learn a lot from Lamb's economy.)

This is the first time I've heard Andrew Sullivan speak at length, and I learned a lot.

Strongly recommended.
