I like to concept. They've just picked the wrong host. I know it would be too crazy to enlist someone from CNNI to host a program with an eye on the world, but still.......

2 page profile / interview of Fareed from The Observer.
Around the world, nostalgia for George W. Bush’s foreign diplomacy might be in short supply these days. But not long ago, Fareed Zakaria, the editor of Newsweek International and the host of CNN’s world affairs program GPS, listened with curiosity as one foreign head of state spoke wistfully of the bygone era of the 43rd president of the United States.
“President George Bush is a great person,” said Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan. “I have a lot of respect for him.”
It was the morning of Thursday, Feb. 12, and Mr. Zakaria was sitting in a television studio in New York, conducting a taped interview via satellite with Mr. Karzai, who was sitting some 6,700 miles away in a regal-looking chair with purple upholstery and golden arms in the presidential palace in Kabul.
In recent months, Mr. Karzai, who came into power with U.S. backing during the Bush administration, has been struggling to regain his footing during the ongoing transition of power in Washington. President Bush understood him. But did President Obama? As of that Thursday morning, Mr. Obama had—still!—yet to reach out and speak to Mr. Karzai directly. Feelings were growing sensitive. Was it too much of a bother for the new guy to pick up the phone?
While awaiting official contact with Washington, Mr. Karzai decided to adopt a proactive approach and so he granted a rare on-camera interview to Mr. Zakaria at CNN.
Mr. Zakaria’s hour-long GPS (which “stands for” Global Public Square) kicked off in the summer of 2008. From the get-go, unlike most Sunday public affairs programs such as Meet the Press and This Week, GPS set out to lure political leaders and thinkers onto the show from outside the Beltway and outside America. Part of Mr. Zakaria’s booking pitch to world leaders has been to emphasize his reach: U.S. policy makers in Washington and New York as well as viewers in London and Moscow and New Delhi—even in Kabul.
