If you didn't see last night's Daily Show interview with Edward Conard, former managing director of Bain Capital, I very highly recommend it. The whole six minutes or so will give you the fullest impression, plus of course the non-televised outtake interviews included online. But if you're pressed, then start at time 2:30 and watch for the next two minutes or so.


The identification with Bain -- from which Conard retired at around age 50 -- is more than a coincidental connection to Mitt Romney. Conard also has given $1 million to a pro-Romney super PAC.

"It's pretty nice the way it is" got my attention, among other lines. But judge for yourself.
