The chattering classes, overrun with Red Sox fans, are waking up to a scary thought: the realization that now they have only the Celtics to cheer hem through an increasingly gloomy time for their favoritist president ever. For them, a special treat: the transcript of my long interview with the New York Times' Peter Baker, which includes many Bush-Obama comparisons (and even a Jay Carney-Scott McClelland side-by-side). There are a great many sharp turns in the interview, so if you missed it, read it all, especially if you want to understand what is happening to this current president right now.
Baker is one of the Manhattan-Beltway media elite's best-and-brightest and with good reason as his new book, Days of Fire, is wonderfully reportered and written, and so fair that Mary Matalin and James Carville could both agree to give it as a Christmas present.
