Anderson Cooper to Donna Brazile: “I Wanna Be Your Boo” (Video)

June 4, 2008 by  

It’s not often that I can say that the funniest moment on TV last night happened on CNN…but it did. While I was watching CNN’s political coverage, moderator Anderson Cooper was asking political strategist Donna Brazile about a conversation she had last night with Senator Barack Obama. When Cooper pressed her from some inside scoop, we had this great exchange. So funny!



(Informal transcript after the jump)

Anderson Cooper: Did he tell you in that phone conversation, that you had privately with him, about how he plans to do that? How he plans to reach out? How he plans to unify?

Donna Brazile: Of course he’s told everyone that he plans to sit down with Senator Clinton at the right time…”

Cooper: I’m looking for something he hasn’t told anyone else…just you.

[Laughter]

Brazile: Anderson, you’re not my boo.

[More laughter]

Cooper: I wanna be your boo. [pause and laughter] I don’t reallyeven know what that means.

[Brazile looks at her watch]

Brazile: Anderson, are we still on TV?

Cooper: Yes we are

Brazile: Well, I think I better watch my words / Cooper: I’m not sure that means exactly….someone can explain it to me later.

Great stuff. And happy birthday to Anderson Cooper…you Silver Fox!

    I am sooo glad you posted this. When I saw this, I immediately called my mother to say “Did Anderson Cooper just politely request to be Donna Brazile’s boo?” I am so glad that it was clearly as funny as I thought it was!

    I rewound it and watched it over and over. I felt like I was Jim Garrison playing the Zapruder film, back and to the left.

    If Barack Obama was overshadowed by a queen tonight, it was not Hillary Clinton, it was Anderson Cooper.

    how cute was that? I love AC. Go Obama go.

    Did anyone think while watching his speech tonight that you were watching a truly historic moment, wow.

    Boo is slang for boyfreind. AC just asked her to be boyfreind and girlfriend. From what information I gathered though, she’s a lesbian.

    This makes it even more funny.

    I love it… Donna is so funny the way she looks at her watch kind of flirting with Anderson! She teased Stephen Colbert like this on his show. I adore her… and Anderson, the most handsome intelligent on-air anchor ever!

    I saw this too. Had to rewind because I did not believe I heard it correctly. That was soo funny!!!! It was great to see that playfulness in Donna too. Did not know she had that in her. :) :) What an amazing, historic night!! Obama gave a speech this morning at the AIPAC and it was really awesome. He looked so presidential, his ideas were so sophisticated. I thought that Clinton’s speech at the same event, which immediately followed, was flat. Same old, same old. It’s funny that they were both slated to speak at the same function the morning after. Though I was a devout Clinton fan early in the race, I truly believe America made the right choice.

    i loved this exchange between donna brazile and anderson! i actually think anderson left her speechless when he said it. that’s why she was looking at her watch, she was, uncharacteristically, at a loss for words. i also seeing those around them get a kick out of it. funny, funny stuff! and, if donna says no, anderson can be my boo anytime he wants! lol!

    They’re kinda hot together, aren’t they? She teased Colbert in a similar way, and they had a playful back-and-forth banter. But with Anderson, you see she got a little flustered there!

    I DEMAND Anderson at least take her out on a date!

    실내 온도를 빨리 올리고 싶다면 가습기를 튼다

    외출 후 돌아와서 집이 추울 때 보일러 온도를 무작정 높이지 말고 적당한 온도로 맞춘다.

    대신 가습기를 틀어 집에 습기를 더한다.

    보일러를 작동시키면 바닥이 덥혀지면서 집이 따뜻해지는데,

    습도가 높으면 공기 순환이 빨라져 집이 빨리 데워지는 효과가 있다.

    I have been utilizing this clipper for my
    Normal Poodle for about 6 months now – I do his feet and face at minimum as soon as a month – and it
    is excellent for all our needs. I have never taken him to a groomer, and have experienced
    show dog buddies and professional groomers inform me he seems great with just the clipping we do with this clipper.
    All clippers will get hot – it’s basically a law of physics: two items of metal rubbing together
    at large speed causes warmth. I have extra blades and a moist fabric close by when the blade will get hot.
    If you discover the clipper “drags via the coat” it could be the very same
    thing that transpired to me when I first acquired it – the blade wasn’t snapped down into situation appropriately and it wasn’t clipping
    at all. For my Poodle, this clipper is fantastic, and the value can not be
    defeat!
    I had by no means clipped both canine or human just
    before, but made a decision to attempt performing my Normal Schnauzer at home.
    He is the terror of all regional groomers: they complain that he
    struggles the total time, so it’s been a headache for them and high-priced for me.
    After investigating home-use clippers at the Groomers BBS, I determined on this Andis
    clipper set and I am delighted. It is so tranquil that my puppy all but
    dismissed it (except close to his ears) and it reduce by means of his really shaggy coat like butter.

    This clipper manufactured simple a work that I had feared would be disastrous.

    The comb attachments aid to mix in the quick and
    prolonged coat areas on the Schnauzer. I adopted the suggestions of the execs and bought
    an further blade so that I could speedily swap them as they grew
    hot.
