Lesley Stahl

Savvy political news reporter and moderator whose on-camera professionalism made her stand out in more than two decades of reporting for CBS News from the nation's capitol. As host for the network's premiere public affairs broadcast, "Face the Nation," her blonde, meticulously groomed good looks and "go for the jugular" questioning style made her one of television's more formidable interviewers and investigative journalists. Dedicated, persistent and tough are some of the adjectives used to describe Stahl's hard-hitting style.
