In fact, Beck has done Jones, and all of us, a mitzvah. Many were surprised and pleased to see Obama, ever the centrist, willing to bring in a firebrand like Jones to shake things up. Part of what made Jones popular was telling it like it is. Jones inspired audiences, especially young people, with the notion that a radical vision, combined with innovative ideas and fundamental organizing, could work in tandem with our political system.

The special easily finished as CNN's most-watched program of the evening in total viewers 1. No matter: In CNN's world, Jones's special was the only program to even break 1 million in total viewers, thereby making him the tallest kid in the class.

Van Jones, who was Obama's "green jobs tsar", has been the subject of a campaign by conservatives ever since they uncovered a video from last year in which he described Republicans as "assholes". The public airing of such a view is awkward for Obama at a time when he is trying to win over Republicans in support of health and energy reforms. Jones, a West Coast civil rights activist and environmentalist who had been in the administration since March, announced his resignation through the White House shortly after midnight on Saturday. He said that he had been the victim of a "smear campaign" and did not want to be a distraction from Obama's ambitious political agenda. The attacks on Jones, who was described by Republicans as a "Marxist" and a "Leninist", are part of a wider attempt to portray the president as a dangerous radical.
