Mark Leibovich on Glitz and Greed in Washington

August 23, 2013

Bill talks with journalist Mark Leibovich about his latest book, This Town [1], a city where money rules the day and status is determined by who you know and what they can do for you. “If you can sell yourself as someone who knows how Washington works, someone who has these relationships,” Leibovich explains, “that’s a very marketable commodity. If you’re seen as someone who knows how this town works, someone who is a usual suspect in this town, you can dine out for years — that’s why no one leaves.”
