those judgments still hold true — Nixon was a crook, Cheney was a war criminal, W. was intellectually unfit for office, both he and his dad took our military into ill-advised conflicts. Trump combines the worst in of all of them without any redeeming qualities.

Contrarian Idea #1: I agree with some of the criticism of Obama too, he was a polished orator with not enough managerial experience, and not a tough negotiator

Contrarian Idea #2: Trump does deserve the Nobel Peace Price, more than Obama did, if he contributes to Korean deescalation, even if he & his spooks do it through back-room arm-twisting and outright threats of nuclear annihilation, or through sheer geopolitical unpredictability

please do publish your review of the book you mention, I’d love to read it
