As a political scientist, I want to be an observer, intereprter, and participant in all they I care about.

"Not only is Woodward not in the hunt, but he is slowly turning into the hunted. Part of what remains to be uncovered is how Woodward was played by the Bush team."

It should be obvious from the work who the Woodward of Now is.

The guy’s name is Murray Waas; he’s an independent journalist who recently went to work for the National Journal.

By Woodward Now I mean the reporter who is actually doing what Woodward has a reputation for: finding, tracking, breaking into reportable parts—and then publishing—the biggest story in town.

The Biggest Story in Town is the one that would cause the biggest earthquake if the facts sealed inside it started coming out now. Today the biggest story in town is what really went down as the Bush team drove deceptively to war.

Dan Froomkin reads all the coverage (it’s his job) and wrote this on March 31:

Slowly but surely, investigative reporter Murray Waas has been putting together a compelling narrative about how President Bush and his top aides contrived their bogus case for war in Iraq.
