    Excellent interview and I was particularly interested in his remarks on the process because I bought the single book last week and read itover the weekend, BEFORE I saw your podcast. My wife will read it later this week.

    the book is a fascinating look at the inner workings of Obama’s campaign process for the past 18 months, and is, of course, VERY timely. WELL worth reading.

    AND the timely format is perfect in thios fast age.

    Len, the stylus you recommended a few weeks ago worked out great and greatly improved my navigation of my Kindle Touch.

    Glad to hear it, Tom! I love mine but can’t figure out what the little loop string attached to it is for. Have you figured that out?

    I agree, Rick. One thing I thought they could have done better is avoid so much self-promotion of Politico, quoting other staffers all the time. But that was a minor quibble on an overall fine piece of reporting, IMHO.
