The one thing that's always been the center of my political thinking - and it goes back to when I was 19 and editor of my college paper - is an abhorrence of the extreme
Whenever you're faced with an explanation of what's going on in Washington, the choice between incompetence and conspiracy, always choose incompetence
I don't mind going into a liberal lion's den. That's where you test yourself
I think if you're going to master policy, especially world affairs, you've got to know history
I envy people who write easily. I enjoy the process, but it's not easeful for me.
