Luke Russert’s Washington Fairy Tale Is Missing an Ending

From a Washington Post story by Kara Voght headlined “Luke Russert’s Washington fairy tale is still missing an ending”:

It unfolded like a Washington fairy tale: A beloved king dies. The kingdom rallies behind the son, who undertakes duties that might prepare him to eventually ascend the throne. Then, one day, an elder approaches him with an urgent warning: Leave, while you still can.

In this case, the avuncular wise man was John A. Boehner, then the Republican speaker of the House.

“You’ve got to learn something else,” Luke Russert recalls Boehner telling him in 2015. “You can’t just live in the political bubble your entire life, because there’s no ‘real’ there.”
