Suskind: Obama was (is?) an unconfident man

That's one key takeaway I have from Ron Suskind's "Confidence Men," my semi-pun riff intended.

Suskind's "Confidence Men," on Obama's organizational (as well as vision lacking) problems is good to very good overall, but not quite great. That said, Suskind was facing some focus and length limits, I'm sure. As I note in my review, one problem is that Suskind never squares the apparently un-confident, certainly unengaged, domestic policy/economy/health care Obama with the totally different (or so it seems) foreign policy Obama.
