Obama the Decider (really)

bill vs barack

Seeing as Marbury has been mean to Obama recently, here’s a corrective.

MSNBC asked Jonathan Alter, an Obama-sympathetic journalist who wrote a book about the president’s first year in office, about that “home alone” quote from Suskind’s book. Alter confirmed he’d heard it being used around the White House by former Clintonites (why did he chose not to include it, then? Presumably it didn’t fit his narrative). But he went on to explain the view of those same people on whether they preferred working for Obama or Clinton:

They thought Clinton was more creative in his policymaking, but they prefer to a person Obama in a crisis, which was what they were in. He was decisive and making as many decisions in a week as Bill Clinton made in a year, and making the decisions crisply.
