He may have been the ultimate icon of 1950s conformity and postwar complacency, but Dwight D. Eisenhower was an iconoclast, visionary, and the Cassandra of the New World Order.

Last night on the Daily Show, Stewart invited filmaker Eugene Jarecki onto the program to plug his award-winning 'Why We Fight'(buy here), a film I think any voting citizen should watch. I'm not sure, but I imagine it was spawned by the recent book of the same name, by William J. Bennett.
