Susan Berg: ”It was a triumphant day for the former president. No, i don’t mean the three american lives he negotiated for in Turkey. Bud’s most artful act of diplomacy took place at home with his ex-wife. Somehow he managed to negotiate his way back into her good graces.
But the day belongs to Secretary of State Elaine Barrish. With the White House intransigent,the Secretary placed one of the larger political bets we have ever witnessed on the table. She bet it all on a man who’s spent a lifetime violating her trust and publicly humiliating her.
I’ve written a lot about Elaine Barrish in this paper over the years. I’ve criticized her for just about everything: from her policies to her marriage, to her motives, to her hair. I was right about the hair, by the way.
I’ve written a lot of things about Elaine Barrish, except “Thank you”.
I’ve never written that. Until today.

“This is how it works, Douglas. I help you by sitting on the story. You help me by giving me everything I need to know about your mother’s plan. Strategy, money, allies, everything. You came to me, Douglas, remember? I’m happy to keep your name out of my reporting but I own you now. We’ll be in touch.” - Susan Berg | Political Animals 1.03 - “The Woman Problem”

— Nobody takes me seriously.
— You want to be taken seriously? Take yourself seriously. Your bus story? It’s good. Go fight for it. Get it back, and write the hell out of it. Don’t let anyone take away your story. Especially if you’re blowing him.
