The Price of Politics
In many respects, Bob Woodward has become a political hatchet man with his well timed books that take aim at leading politicians without offering much in the way of insight except a few tantalizing bits and pieces picked up by news blogs. Here he goes again with his 17th book, this one on the debt deal collapse, saying,
"It was increasingly clear that no one was running Washington. That was trouble for everyone, but especially for Obama." I hope he goes a little deeper than this in his book.
