Arianna Huffington was the tall, skinny Greek kid who talked her way into Cambridge University and then onto the American media stage.
She's married rich, written up a storm, taken on television, run against Schwarzenegger for governor in California, and along the way made a noisy migration from the political right to the political left.
Now Arianna Huffington is the progressive publisher of the Huffington Post, one of the hottest political intersections and blogger battlegrounds on the web. She's watching the left and the right. And she's out with a new book on fearlessness, in a time of fear.
