|West Wing Entrance. A very cool day.|
It was really a treat to be invited, and doubly so that we didn't do the meeting in the Old Executive Office Building (been there, done that) --a beautiful old place, but not the "show".
One of the things I came to learn during my final tour in the Navy was the degree to which where matters of foreign policy and defense are concerned, the adults are generally in charge atop both parties. Folks working on this National Security Staff are no exception. Very smart, very collegial, listening intently. This was an all time great day.
