I don't know the politics of Megyn Kelly. But after a few years of seeing her operate, and occasionally running into her in the hallways at Fox News, I think I've learned a tiny bit about her as a person.

For instance, I know that Megyn is a kind person, and someone who demonstrates gratitude for those who have done her kindness. Exhibit A in that bit of evidence is the affection she shares for Brit Hume the retired senior admiral of the Fox News editorial operation. Brit was the one who discovered Megyn and first put her on microphone with a camera and assignment in the beltway.

"Anyone watching her even from a distance knew that her natural talent would take her a long way," said Fox News Radio host John Gibson when I once asked him about the rising star.

Those that watched her stint in the mornings with Bill Hemmer last year knew that she was personable and funny, and if anything, always proper--even when animated.

Megyn's public persona seems to capture a cut-throat "tell me the truth" kind of persistence in her line of questioning, but always one that carries tact and taste with it.

Even when the infamous Howard Stern asked her to come on his Sirius morning show and asked her the questions that Howard Stern would naturally ask, she kept her demeanor and composure and did not yield in her expectations to be treated like and to respond in kind as--a lady.

Megyn's had big stories. But her most recent, and perhaps most important story that she's been able to break is one that runs right to the core of our American life. Her willingness to put on-air J. Christian Adams, a former attorney for the Department of Justice, who had resigned his post in order to expose the racism inherent in the department, is serving all of America extremely well.

Megyn's show was able to uncover that our current Department of Justice has issued an edict that would prevent the department from any involvement in prosecuting voter intimidation cases in which the victims were white and whose initiators were black. A policy implemented once Eric Holder and the other political appointments were in place following the coming to power of the Obama administration.
