The clever Noam Scheiber at the clever New Republic picked up on the most interesting single statement made by Barack Obama in my interview with him. Not, by the way, Obama's contention that Israel is a "sore" -- because he didn't say it, Mr. Boehner. Obama told me that his sensibility was partially shaped by the books of Philip Roth. This obviously has profound implications for American foreign policy, and for shiksas, as well.

And so, a reader contest. In a couple of pithy sentences, tell us what the first 100 days of a Roth-influenced Obama presidency would look like. I'll post the best responses. First prize is a piece of liver.
