The "Conversations With Bill Kristol" interview this week is with Joseph Lieberman, who tells this anecdote about the difference between President Obama and President Clinton:
the last year when I was in the Senate, I was sitting at a table in the Senate. We happened to be at the Senate Democratic Caucus and one of the colleagues said, "When's the last time any of you talked to President Obama?" So I said, he turned to me and I said, "Well, about six weeks ago, I got a call about something that was in my committee." "Wow, six weeks ago." So this guy who was the chairman of one of the major committees – "I haven't seen him or talked to him in six months." And then we started talking about Clinton and I remember saying, "Clinton, he'd call you and the problem was how do I get him off the phone," he was just, you know, until he got your agreement to do what he wanted you to do.
