So CNN Anchor Erin Burnett Thinks Americans Generally Not 'Open-Minded, Tolerant'?

Erin Burnett apparently thinks Americans could use the federal government's help in being "open-minded, tolerant citizens."

In a November 2 "Answer This" interview, Politico's Patrick Gavin asked the CNN anchor and former object of Chris Matthews's affection, "You’re president of the United States for enough time to make only one executive decision. What is it?"

Burnett answered:

Mandate one year of service for young people — whether domestically or overseas. It could be military or other service. Travel and exposure to people who speak other languages, have different values or live in different socioeconomic situations is important to raising open-minded, tolerant citizens.
