There are few voices in Washington that rise above the noise of partisan politics. Norm Ornstein is one such voice. As an author of several books and a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, Ornstein is one of the wise men of Washington, and that is not a term I use lightly. He has advised presidents and other political leaders and his list of accomplishments is staggering. Among his many books is the often cited, “The Broken Branch: How Congress is Failing America and How to Get it Back on Track.” Being able to interview Ornstein for Focus Washington was a special privilege and his observations on the early days of the Obama Administration, were smart and balanced. Focus Washington will go back to Ornstein for his thoughtful viewpoints as the Washington political battles continue to heat up over the first year of the new Administration and the Democratic Party-controlled congress.
