Garance Franke-Ruta, Senior Editor and Chief of the Politics Channel at The Atlantic, and I were privileged to have this picture taken with President and Michelle Obama.
It was a great evening — and the President said some great things about The Atlantic for which he has actually been a contributor. Here is his piece, titled “Perfecting our Union” in which he reflected on the lessons of Lincoln for our time.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
