Leon Panetta has held more important positions in the U.S. government than practically anyone. He began his career as a Congressman from California and from there went on to be Director of the OMB, White House Chief of Staff, Director of the CIA, and finally Secretary of Defense. His autobiography Worthy Fights is imbued with the frank, grounded, and often quite funny spirit of a man who never lost touch with his roots. It is a testament to a lost kind of political leadership, which favors progress and duty to country over partisanship.
