I'm still vacationing but . . .

I'm still vacationing but I came across this quote from Carl Bernstein in an interview with The Financial Times about his book A Woman in Charge that I wanted to share.

FT: Do you think Hillary will bring the same kind of tough image that America currently has under the Bush presidency?

CB: I think your description of a "kind of tough image" mis-states the actual facts in terms of the Bush presidency. A more common and widely held image, I believe, is one of arrogance, mendacity, incompetence, and secrecy bordering on, or crossing into, the extra-constitutional.

Bravo! and pass the sunscreen.
