Going the distance

In the last few months Obama sat for lengthy interviews with New Yorker magazine editor David Remnick, who interviewed the President for hours in the Oval Office and on Air Force One. The result is a  a nearly 17,000-word profile of the president as he begins his sixth year in office. The story is a great, personal, philosophical long-read, and you should get a cup of your favorite hot beverage and sit down with it for an hour.
