4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insights February 10, 2010
This is a great interview with NY Times author David Brooks discussing his spin on public policy in the time of Obama's declining popularity. Brooks insightfully recognizes that hunkering down and becoming absorbed by day-to-day details, such as White House administration, does not make for the kind of leadership we demand of a great President. Clarity of vision is compromised, and Obama seems to be caught in this trap. It's a lesson Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan learned early on.

The real reason I ordered this interview is for the 12-minute discussion of neuroscience starting around the 41-minute mark of the 60-minute show. David Brooks is working on a book about the unconscious. Or, specifically, about how our classical way of referring to reason for answers to practically everything, fails us. The human brain is exponentially more complex than fact-based analysis and cold rationality can accommodate. To fully explain human behavior and decisions that so often defy logic, we need to appreciate our emotional facets, social influences, and subjective psychological needs. Fascinating stuff.
