Katharine Graham
Polite Professional Relationships
printer friendly version
These cool or antagonistic relationships are part of life in Washington
and are accepted as such, but I often think how self-defeating they are
and how much better polite professional relationships would serve
political figures and journalists in situations like this. I agreed with a
charming message I got from George McGovern after he had been
defeated for the presidency. He recalled making some bitter remarks
about a couple of our columnists at a dinner party; but wrote me,
"I have regretted that outburst and I have also established that the
maximum time I can carry a grudge is about three months. This note is
simply to say that I have now forgotten all campaign grudges. It is just
too difficult trying to remember which people I'm supposed to shun."
