While he is, by all accounts, left of the political center, Jon Stewart has had many GOP members on the Daily Show and has a reputation as a well-respected interviewer.
After a recent appearance, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tweeted that he “Just wrapped up one of the most thoughtful interviews” of his book tour.
