Watch Wolf discuss meeting the pope.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - I promised you I would report on my wonderful opportunity actually to meet Pope Benedict XVI while he was on the campus of The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. It was a very special moment for me.
Accompanied by Father David O’Connell, the President of Catholic University, the pontiff walked into a small room where ten invited guests were anxiously awaiting his arrival. He could not have been nicer. He graciously shook hands with all of us, and gave us each a gold medal showcasing his visit to the United States. This is something I will always treasure.
Father O’Connell, in introducing me to the Pope, noted that I work for CNN. The Pope said something about that being “very important.” I told him that it was wonderful of him to honor the United States by paying this historic visit.
One footnote: My friend Tim Russert, the NBC News Washington Bureau Chief, was also among the special guests invited to meet with the Pope. The two of us are both originally from Buffalo, New York, and we couldn’t help but reflect on how extraordinary it was for two Buffalonians - one from the South Side and the other from the North Side - winding up in Washington and receiving this high honor. I think we both were pinching ourselves. Needless to say, we were both on our best behavior.
Wuffie, we just don't care....
Get a spine.
I'm impressed, Wolf. No pro-Obama spin!
Hillary is going to go on Saturday Not Live this weekend to "pretend" she is the most adoring person on the planet. Not only is she not adoring, she's not even human.
I'm sure Snotty Not Live is salivating to get her back on their brain dead show.
Hey Hillary, Got Decency? I didn't think so.
Is it really all that big a deal?
I mean, especially if you aren't Catholic... who cares? I'd rather meet Tom Cruise in all honesty.
Wolf–Not even one question about the Vatican's hospitality and–in some cases–sympathy for Nazi Germany during the build up to and the start of WWII??
I am so very happy for you Wolf. It was a great opportunity for you to meet the pope...so many people would have loved to be in your shoes. The gold medal would be a treasure to me also.
Why'd you expect pro-Obama spin from Wolf Blitzer?
That's not really "reporting," it's more like a high-schooler's diary entry.
Wolf it is ok, we are not intrested in this keep it to yourself.
Ask for the Pope to pray for your making it to the other side of this campaign with your integrity still intact, because you are losing it. If you want to support Hillary, go work on her dying campaign, and stop pretending to be “fair and balanced”, you’re not.
Good for you wolf getting blessing from the Pop will hopefuly make you relize being hard to people who do not look like you is not the right thing to do. I am hoping from now on you will start reporting as it is and as you see it with out any bias. God bless you
Oh one more thing if you could advice your racist friend Lou Dobbs to behave the same way thanks.
From New Hampshire, we watched that Cardinal Law go reside in the Vatican. "Why not leave him home?", -we asked.
congratulations, mr. blitzer! it's indeed a great honor to have met and shook the hands of Pope Benedict XVI. you are very lucky!
Alright, Wolf, let's do some 3-on-3 on a half court.... You, Timmy Russert, and Benny XVI on Hannity, Coulter, and me... Who should ref? McCain or Obama?
Hillary sure looks ridiculous with this pom-poms...
Having read Tim Russert's book on his father and his years in Buffalo, I know how important this invitation is to you Buffolonians. I understand that there is a large Catholic community made up of various ethnic groups who settled in the area some time ago.
I think the Pope's trip so far has been extremely positive. The fact that he met with victims of abuse by the Church was a major breakthrough and I thank him for acknowledging and apologizing for the Church's sins.
Best of luck Wolf! And remember – Totus Tuus!
Everyone to his/Her Own... I love the Sun.. myself.
Wish you would ask the tough questions like, what good will a 20 cent tax cut be when gas is 4.00 per gallon? The other tough question, gas taxes pay for badly needed road repairs, how will we pay for road repairs? Scratch the last question, who can afford to drive anyway.
the pope is just a regilious figure. being a past catholic, I'm not that thrilled that people call him Holy Father. There is only one Father in heaven. And this post will never make it because it is truth.
I'm sure your mothers would have been proud.
CNN WHERE IS YOUR HEADLINES:
OBAMA DROP 8 POINTS IN 3 DAYS!!!!!!!
OBAMA HAD A 11 POINT LEAD!!!!
You look quilty Wolf!!
Did you go to confession Wolf?You could have told him how biased you have been.
You hopefully will acknowledge by these comments thay you are not
much appreciated as the Political Ticker anchor nor by your role in TV.
Nothing personal against you, but it is a fact that between the visible
members of the ridiculously called "BEST POLITICAL TEAM" you are
one of the least qualified. more so to lead it.
I hope that after speaking with the pope (a really inspiring person), you will see the light and resign !
I HOPE VERY MUCH (AGAIN, UNTIL NOW I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST YOU PERSONALLY), THAT THIS POST WILL NOT BE DELETED,
