Two interviews with Pervez Musharraf

Tuesday night Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf visited with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Click here to watch that interview.

Reuters reported on the interview:

Throughout the pre-recorded interview on the cable channel Comedy Central, Musharraf was quick-witted and jovial, while Stewart struck a more serious, respectful tone than he normally does with guests.

Stewart closed by putting Musharraf on the "Seat of Heat" -- surrounded with flashing lights that mimicked flames -- and asking him who would win a popular vote in Pakistan between Bush and Osama bin Laden.

"I think they'll both lose miserably," replied Musharraf to loud applause from the studio audience.

The London Times has a print interview with Musharraf here.

Excerpts from Musharraf's memoir are here and here.
