Lincoln, FDR, and the Power of the Well-Timed Vacation

It's the middle of summer, which means two things: all over the country people are going on vacation, and Washington, D.C. is a mess. Might part of the reason be that, while most people recognize the benefits of unplugging, recharging, and renewing in the summer, our politicians spend the season tethered to the same hamster wheel, including endless calls and events begging for money? The deficits we should be demanding that Washington focuses on are our leaders' deficits: energy, creativity, insight and wisdom. And summer is the perfect time to build up a surplus. I'm happy to see that President Obama will be taking a few weeks vacation in August. Maybe he can reserve some bipartisan bunk beds and take a few Republicans with him. We could certainly use a few masterpieces born of refueling.
