James Fallows of The Atlantic was a guest tonight on "Piers Morgan Tonight" and discussed last night's Christine O'Donnell interview walk-off. "The only explanation for why Ms. O'Donnell responded the way she did is she just must have panicked," he told Piers Morgan. "There's no good explanation for letting that become such an awkward moment."
Fallows was Pres. Jimmy Carter's chief speechwriter, and talked about politicians generally. "What politicians can usually do is say 'my views on this are well known,'" he said.

Minutes after Christine O'Donnell walked off her interview with Piers Morgan, I walked into her green room to escort her and her team out of the building. It's standard procedure for a member of our team to walk each and every guest out after the show. Sometimes that means you get lucky and ride in an elevator with Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Other times, that means you're the first person Christine O'Donnell meets after she storms off the set, upset with questions regarding her stance on gay marriage. FULL POST
Christine O'Donnell was a guest last night on "Piers Morgan Tonight," and besides the walk-off that everyone is talking about, she also was interviewed for 20 minutes about the GOP, masturbation, her "witch" ad and more. "It was a very heavy lift for a grassroots, mostly volunteer based campaign.," she said of the GOP in 2010. " And without the strength of a united party it was difficult."
