Critics Take the Lead in Defining Bush's Legacy
Washington Post - February 4, 2008
President Bush and his advisers have long insisted they are not interested in dwelling on his presidential legacy, saying they want to "sprint to the finish" in getting things done this year. But if that's truly the case, they may well be ceding the field to their critics.

'The Other K Street'
In the Concrete Canyon of the Business Lobby, a Pocket of Liberal Activists Settles In
Washington Post - May 7, 2007
Brad Woodhouse tapped the mute button on the gray speakerphone, scanned the faces of the half-dozen other people listening to the conference call and said with a sly grin, "Good spin." The spiky-haired Woodhouse had just heard a fellow member of Change America Now, a Democratic-leaning coalition, argue that legislation pending in Congress to raise the nation's minimum wage represented a victory because it contained fewer corporate tax cuts than an earlier version.
