Warren's World - Leave the White House to some other sucker.

Warren’s memoir reads a bit like The Payoff,
http://www.amazon.com/dp/1935212966/?tag=slatmaga-20

Jeff Connaughton’s story of his lobbying career and the two-year Senate
residency of Delaware’s Ted Kaufman. Both books contain head-shaking
anecdotes about banks attempting to rebut decades of studies with junk
data that they paid for; both portray members of Congress as gibbering
ideologues. Connaughton concluded that the system was, well, rigged.
Warren decides that the people running the system are so blatant in
their venality, laziness, and graft that they can be beaten. That’s the
battle. Leave the White House to some other sucker
.
