    So she had a crush on Dan Rather.She was just being honest and kind.I'm sure when she told Mr.Rather,his first thought was..."Oh lord if I could just be 40 again!!"Of course she's the most beautiful journalist on tv.But she is more attractive because of her brains!!She knows her stuff.Only because she does her homework and works hard!I'm sure her parents are proud.Keep up the good work...hate it when I miss your show.

    she was 6 at the time....which means it was atleast 30 years ago. and from what my mom told me, alot of women had a crush on dan rather when he was younger.

    Rather used to be a journalist, 25-35 years ago, but he eventually sold out...he caved to the temptation to ring that star-bell one more time before his career hit bottom....but only a desparate fool doesn't check facts. His demise was well deserved.

    Erin may be purty, but I now question why she put Rather on the show. Perpetuating a fool can only make you look even more foolish.
