When you want to know what's happening in a small town you go to the beauty shop or the barber shop. Evan Thomas gives a glimpse into the machinations of small town DC,the capital of the world to its denizens.
Three great lawyers dominate DC from 1932-1990. Tommy the Cork,Clark Clifford,and Ed Williams.Much of the credit or blame for Democratic Rule can be laid at the feet of these titans.They instilled admiration and fear into the enemies of the clubs around the city--Supreme Court,Congress and White House.
It's a great read for major characters exhibit all the nuances and pettiness of small town bullies and wealthier members.Drinking,working,and back stabbing seem to blend together.Williams ace in the hole for most Washingtonians was his ownership of the Redskins the only transpartisan element amongst the powerful.
