“Obama seemed poised to realign American politics after his stunning 2008 victory. But the economy remains worse than even the administration’s worst-case scenarios, and the long legislative battles over health care reform, financial services reform and the national debt and deficit have taken their toll. Obama no longer looks invincible.”

“My job is to be a spokesman – the spokesman, I suppose – for the President, for the White House, to do the daily briefings, to manage the press corps in terms of travel, day-to-day needs, access, interviews, all those issues.”

Trying to negotiate getting a couple of kids to watch the same TV show requires serious diplomacy.”

“This is a generation weaned on Watergate, and there is no presumption of innocence and no presumption of good intentions. Instead, there is a presumption that, without relentless scrutiny, the government will misbehave.”

“Women have a lot of power in private life. There are many men who would say, ‘Hey, women already rule my life.’ But with women, more is more. The more there are, the more the world gets used to seeing them. We change the culture. We begin to expand options and lead and manage.”
