Daniel Patrick Moynihan: The Intellectual in Public Life (Woodrow Wilson Centre Series) - used book

1976, ISBN: 0801860717

ID: 5132540

Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY) is widely regarded as one of the brightest lights on Capitol Hill. He is, to quote Michael Barone's contribution to this admiring anthology of tributes, "the nation's best thinker among politicians since Lincoln and its best politician among thinkers since Jefferson." Moynihan is an essential and leading political voice on issues ranging from Social Security to welfare to national security. James Q. Wilson cites the senator's "luminous intellect, personal conviction, deep historical knowledge, the eye of an artist and the pen of an angel, and above all, an incorruptible devotion to the common good." This smart collection of essays reviews Moynihan's career as a scholar (he's the author or coauthor of several fine books, including Secrecy and Miles to Go) and a public servant (he worked in four consecutive administrations, from JFK to Gerald Ford, before being voted into Congress in 1976). Readers may wish that the book were at times a bit more critical, but almost all of its essays are nevertheless interesting and worthwhile. The most entertaining one comes from Tim Russert, moderator of NBC's Meet the Press, who recalls the senator's appearances on the show over the years. Once, Russert asked his guest whether he will "fight until death" over a certain proposed tax. Replied Moynihan: "Fight until death over taxes? Oh no. Women, country, God, things like that. Taxes? No." --John J. Miller
