      Fascinating. I read Shwartz's "coming out" as his co-author a few years back in The New Yorker, and this was just as compelling. Love the "I was there" scoop.

      I realize that the only kind of political stories that I currently enjoy tend to be first-hand accounts, told as great stories, and definitely without preaching or moralizing. That can be hard to find, but this article is really close.
