Gwen reviews "The Bridge: The Life & Rise of Barack Obama"

Gwen's Take

When The Washington Post asked me to review David Remnick’s new book “The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama,” I quickly said yes.

As someone who spends my days trying to peer inside, through and around national and global events, I possess a bottomless well of curiosity about people who aspire to lead.

You will see in the review that follows that I admired Remnick’s final product, all 600+ pages of it. This is in part because I spent so much time (and sweat and tears) trying to write a far more narrowly focused book of my own in 2008.

Deadlines, Schmedlines...

Gwen's Take

“If you don’t set deadlines in this town, things don’t happen.
The default position is inertia.”
– President Barack Obama July 22, 2009

We enter another weekend with yet another health care deadline hanging low on Washington’s horizon. It will be neither the first nor the last time that gauntlets have been thrown down.
