Katie Couric Exclaims She's A Purple Stater!

<p>During the 9:00am hour of the <i>Today</i> show Katie Couric tried to play herself off as a middle-of-the roader. Today invited Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake to promote their new book, <em>What Women Really Want</em>, which included a premise that women agree on 80 percent of the issues. Couric used that as an opportunity to essentially yell, &quot;Me too! I'm everywoman!&quot;</p><p>Couric to Conway and Lake: &quot;You know we were talking earlier and basically what you were saying is that women in this country are a much more cohesive unit than you might think hearing all the jazz about red states versus blue states. <strong>You say something that I've actually said in the past, we're really all purple...&quot;</strong></p><p>No, Katie you're all blue, stop trying to hide it. </p><p /><p />
