Before there was Leon Panetta, there was the protestor outside the 1992 Democratic convention. "The reason we are here in New York is we're afraid that we might get another lawyer as president," he shouted through a bullhorn in the film "The War Room."
Panetta, the former defense secretary and CIA director, is the latest onetime Washington insider to critique a president he once served. "Too often, in my view," he writes in his new book, "Worthy Fights," President Obama "relies on the logic of a law professor rather than the passion of a leader."
Thanks for reminding us who we elected. Now we need to remember why.
