My old TPM colleague and friend Greg Sargent at WhoRunsGov kindly asked me if I would contribute a list of five Power Picks — yeah, I’m a power player, you heard me — for their “Who Runs The War” wiki-feature. I figured I’d highlight some lesser-known-but-crucial figures for the implementation of the strategy after I saw Peter Bergen phone his picks in. (Clinton? Gates? Holbrooke? Dude, put your back into it.) Then he and WRG’s Amanda Erickson suggested we make a video. Here it is.
