Obama write-up in New Yorker

The write-up is here and my favorite line (from Obama, as it turns out) is this one:

“You can’t always come up with the optimal solution, but you can usually come up with a better solution,” [Obama] said over lunch one afternoon. “A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence.”

That sentiment really appeals to the legislative policy wonk in me. There's nothing quite like a good bill.
