Advise and Consent

Just finished this Pulitzer Prize winning novel from the late 50’s. Really enjoyed it even though there were a few details that didn’t quite sit right with me.

Anyway, not sure if this belongs in the Politics or Books forum… I was wondering how relevant people thought that book’s depiction of life in Washington was to today’s government. I could see it still being very similar.

Then take the topic over in the Politics forum about the republican senator coming out agains the patriot act, and it makes me wonder just what might have went on to get that passed.
