Bill Clinton’s summer reading fave

July 12, 2012

(Bloomsbury USA)

Clinton, we are told, mentioned our former colleague and Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne’s latest work, “Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent.”

“This is the best thing E.J. has written in 20 years -- since ‘Why Americans Hate Politics,’ ” Clinton said, according to a source.

If it’s as good as “Why Americans Hate Politics,” must be pretty good. It’s also gotten praise from folks on the right and left as well as an upbeat review in this paper.

Al Kamen, an award-winning columnist on the national staff of The Washington Post, created the “In the Loop” column in 1993.
