Who Is This Arianna Person?

Arianna Huffington was just commenting on Hannity & Colmes. She is speaking as if she is an expert on Bush, his policies, the war in Iraq and it's failure.

Now, I did a little research and from what I can tell she hasn't had a lot of successes in her life. She had one relationship fail, her marriage ended in divorce (because, well, he liked men more), she dropped out of the California gubernatorial race after the Gray Davis recall, and she then attempted to get the recall overturned, which failed as well. She's had charges of plagiarism in two of her ten books which were settled out of court. She has ties to a "cult-like" church called The Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness which apparently is a front for the church of Scientology. And she has issues with what her political affiliation. Is she a Democrat?, a Republican?, a Centrist? Who knows?

She has written books, so have millions of others. She has a blog, so do millions of others. She has an MA in Economics, so do millions of others. She has a radio program, so do millions of others. So, why is it she is considered such an insightful guest speaker and political expert?
