Stephen Colbert Schools Caroline Kennedy on Poetry

What I love about this is Colbert's genuine love and excitement for poetry that comes through. it offsets Caroline Kennedy's snootiness when she doesn't actually recognize the work of well-respected authors (Tolkein) and poets (e.e. cummings). (I confess I mistook the cummings piece for Ogden Nash when I first heard it-- until Colbert identified it.)
