CNN Take Note:  THIS is an Interview We’ll All Stop and Watch

ABC News has just announced that Diane Sawyer has interviewed NASA astronaut, Capt. Mark Kelly  for a special “20/20″ Tuesday night at 10 p.m..

In an announcement on the ABC News website, they say:  “She is the political centrist who likes to ride motorcycles. He is the NASA astronaut set to command the space shuttle Endeavour’s final mission to space this April. The two met in China and their first date was not a typical one – a trip to an Arizona State Prison; she was working on legislation about capital punishment. Now, their relationship has captured the hearts of America.

“For the first time, Capt. Kelly opens up to Diane Sawyer about the moment he heard the tragic news, the emotional bed-side vigil he has kept since, and how the nation’s outpouring of support has impacted them. In addition, Sawyer gets insight into the dynamics of the couple from friends and loved ones who know them best.”

“The Congresswoman and the Astronaut: An American Story of Love and Strength” airs Tuesday, at 10pm ET/PT with portions airing Tuesday morning on ”GMA.”

Congratulations To the Crack Team Who Made this Happen

From the moment we saw the photograph of his hand holding onto hers in the hospital room I wanted to know volumes one, two and three of their love story.

I want to  meet his children, her step-children. I want to embrace every ray of hope, every thread of challenge ahead.  This couple has captured our imaginations in the league of  Taylor and Burton.  Here are two glorious, dedicated public servants in the prime of their service and,  to quote Julia Sweeney: ” Then God said, ‘Hah!’ “
