The Pot Says What?

Dan Rather on Katie Couric as news anchor:

I asked [Rather] if Katie Couric could do as good a job [as he did].

He said, "CBS thinks she will."

"The question was: Do you think she could?"

Dan said, "In time, I think she will. It took her 15 years to make the 'Today' show a hit. I'm sure it will take her longer than that to beat Charlie Gibson and Brian Williams."

Right. This from the guy who started out in first place in the 80's after taking over for Cronkite and then slipped to second and then, in the 90's, to a permanent third place behind Brokaw and Jennings. Maybe, Dan, it will take her so long to beat Gibson and Williams because you started her out in the hole.
