Bob Woodward and the Obama Administration Made Up

US journalist Bob Woodward takes part in the TV show

Bob Woodward and White House Economic Council Director Gene Sperling’s weird sequester op-ed misunderstanding seems to have come to a close. In an appearance on ABC’s This Week, Sperling called Woodward “a legend” and spoke about their “very friendly and respectful relationship” of 20 years. He added: “I hope that him and I can put this behind us.” Soon after, on CBS’s Face the Nation, Woodward accepted the olive branch, calling Sperling “a peacemaker.” He even offered up a venue for an official truce: “I’m going to invite [Sperling] over to my house if he’ll come and hopefully he’ll bring others from the White House, maybe the president himself, and we can — you know, talking really works.” After all, there’s nothing Woodward likes more than hosting the big shots.
