GAIL COLLINS, op-ed columnist for the New York Times, talks about Obama, Gingrich, and Mitt Romney, who went on a family vacation to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of the car — and also about William Henry Harrison, subject of her new book.
Also: PICO IYER talks about Graham Greene and his masterpiece The Quiet American – a “haunted kinship” links the two writers, whose restless travels and fascinatation with faith suggest some deeper connection. Pico’s new book is The Man Within My Head.
Plus: HAROLD MEYERSON on Obama’s State of the Union—and Obama’s problem with working-class whites. Harold writes a column for the Washington Post op-ed page and is editor-at-large of The American Prospect.
