America's Next Great Pundit? With Finals Coming Up, Maybe Not.

As you may have read earlier this week, The Washington Post recently named Jeremy L. Haber, a joint J.D./M.B.A. student at HLS and the B School, as one of its four remaining finalists in the newspaper's "America's Next Great Pundit" contest. Unfortunately, the Internet has voted, and Haber came in fourth, receiving about 7 percent of the vote in the seventh round.

Social activist Alan A. Khazei '83, one of four individuals vying to be the Democratic candidate for the late Edward M. Kennedy's '54-'56 senate seat, could be the reason that Stephen Colbert may be coming to a political forum near you.

In the video, Khazei demanded to know if Colbert was "tough enough to come here to Massachusetts—the birthplace of freedom, the birthplace of our democracy—and moderate a debate up against four progressive Democrats." "It's for real," David R. Jacobson, Khazei's deputy communications director, told us. Check out the video—and find out if Colbert has responded—after the jump.
