Panetta said, “He [Obama] approaches things like a law professor in presenting a logic of his position. There is nothing wrong with that. We want to have a president who thinks through the issues.

That is key in Washington. In order for presidents to succeed, they cannot just — when they run into problems, step back and give up.”
