Any guess's as to what Washington's reply will be? I'm opting for "Ah No"

Republicans say he's nothing more than a footnote in the history of the 20th century. Everyone else says he changed the face of politics in the 20th century.
As for me, I say, where is the Mark Felt of today?
Woodward & Bernstein? Ben Bradlee (Washington Post Editor durning those dark days)?
Where are your brethren today?
Come out, come out wherever you are.
If there was ever a time we needed men like these, it would be now.
