Dire predictions about the fate of certain government programs hardly have been in short supply as sequestration-related budget cuts loomed. It was hardly a surprise, then, when Education Secretary Arne Duncan got in on the act.
The bizarre back-and-forth between the White House and legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward has come to a close as both sides agreed on Sunday to move on.
