Maybe those comments by
Gates were written as a sound bite to sell books. I for 1 of probably hundreds, have ordered the book (ebook) even tho it won't be out till the 14th.

I think there should be a moratorium on elected officials writing memoirs about their time in office for at least 10 years. It doesn't take a very big "set" to write about your dislike of your bosses and their policies after you've returned to the private sector.

If by "interesting" you mean "descent into depravity so low it doesn't even reach up to the level of reality TV or soap operas," I guess you could call it interesting.

I wish we could put a moratorium on talking about the 2016 election until...

Well, ideally, until about June 2016 - but it would be nice if we could hold off until at least 2015.

So it seems that everyone that leaves office writes their memoirs. It appears that Secretary Gates wasn't too thrilled with the President and especially not the Vice President.

The GOP would be dancing in the streets singing "I told you so, I told you so" if it wasn't for the fact that in the same book Gates praised Hillary Clinton almost to the point he may have been nursing a crush on her and He was totally disgusted with Congress.

The 2016 campaign should be very interesting.
