Personally, I was startled by how different Heldman was behind-the-scenes with me compared what I had expected her to be like after watching her on FOX News.
She was kind, understanding and quite generous with her time. She read my full profile to the students in her class and even allowed a documentary filmmaker, J.D. Wilcox, to record my remarks. As I understand it, my brief story on meeting young Barack Obama will be premiered at the GI Film Festival in May 2012.
