Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, sits down with “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer for a wide-ranging interview covering the importance of staying on the story “in an almost obsessive way,” how economic woes impact the 2012 election and the student loan debt crisis. Huffington describes correspondent David Wood’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 10-part series on wounded veterans and cites a “moral obligation” for war to be discussed as a campaign issue: “I’m not a pacifist, I believe there are times when we have to fight wars, but unnecessary wars are really immoral. Especially when you focus on the incredible sacrifice beyond the battlefield. And the fact that this issue is really not at all part of the campaign is also tragic.”
