Inside "Sicko" Part II: Michael Moore Speaks Out [VIDEO]

When the debate becomes about Moore, who polarizes so many people, the power of the film itself often gets lost. Oprah does a good job of promoting it and Moore seems to be on a new humble roll in his interviews. Click on the video to your right to see what I'm talking about.
