Today on NBC’s Chris Matthews’ show, Bob Woodward was one of the guests on the panel, and during the standard Q&A between Chris and the panelists, a couple of curious things came out of Woodward’s mouth.
The first thing that caught my attention was when Chris played a segment of the inauguration where Obama said we “must begin again the work of remaking America.” Woodward began his comments by reminding us of the “if you will unclench the fist, we will extend the hand.” He says it’s obvious the big difference between Obama and Bush & Cheney is that Obama is for diplomacy, but if you get right down to it, Bush and Cheney “didn’t really like diplomacy.”
Next, Chris asked the panel about the troubles the Obama Administration might encounter, and Woodward again caught my attention. He said he didn’t think the “nanny and household tax problems” were over for this administration. Chris remarked that we already know about Tim Geithner and Caroline Kennedy, to which Woodward responded by reiterating: “I say it’s not over.”
Hmmm… I wonder what he could mean?
