Jack Germond

Liane is joined by Baltimore Sun political columnist and television commentator Jack Germond. After 40 years of covering local and national politics, Germond has written his memoirs, entitled "Fat Man In A Middle Seat: Forty Years Of Covering Politics" (pub: Random House). He says over the years, politicians have become increasingly beholden to their advisors and pollsters and less willing to take unpopular stands.
