The famed Bob Woodward, author of Obama’s Wars, appeared this morning on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.” A caller asks him if he’s a Democrat or a Republican.

Part of Woodward’s response:

“Because I live in the District of Columbia which is so predominantly Democratic, I am a registered Democrat. But I am an avowed neutral.  And to put that into practice, I take my young daughter into the voting booth and she votes for me. She’s now 14.  We’ve been doing this since she was about age 4.  She’s now quite informed…”

Noteworthy detail: In page 200 of All the President’s Men, Woodward is referred to as a registered Republican.
