Once upon a time, Barack Obama understood the power of a good story. His campaign mantras — "Yes we can" and "Change we can believe in" — inspired voters, especially young people, blacks and Latinos, and propelled him into the White House. But once in office, Obama lost the thread of the plot. He abandoned his original message and embraced compromise and bipartisanship rather than pushing for dramatic change. That narrative hasn't gotten far with a recalcitrant Congress, especially Republicans, who have their own high concept to pitch: Just say no to Obama.

My Father at 100 A Memoir Ron Reagan Viking: 228 pp., $25.95 "Hinckley had loaded his pistol with a type of exploding bullet charmingly marketed as a Devastator," writes Ron Reagan, describing John Hinckley Jr.'s 1981 attempt to assassinate his father, President Ronald Reagan. "It was the sixth and final shot that first hit not Dad but the armor-plated side of the presidential limousine. The armor did its job admirably well, but with disastrous consequences. As it was deflected, the bullet flattened into a dime-sized disk before striking my father, slicing into his chest beneath his left arm and lodging in his left lung, barely an inch from his heart, still unexploded.

With a song commissioned in his honor, President Reagan celebrated his birthday to the cheers of Cabinet members and friends on Friday at a surprise party thrown by his wife a day before he turns 77. "We really did pull it off. He was surprised," Nancy Reagan told the 70 people in the State Dining Room. Dessert at the birthday luncheon was a two-tiered lemon cake decorated with chocolate horseshoes, wafers with Reagan's profile, miniature horses, a tiny pair of boots and a small cowboy hat.

The carefully choreographed ceremony for President Reagan's signing of the landmark tax overhaul bill was timed down to the second, but not everything went according to plan. As Reagan signed the cover sheets of the bill--the full text itself weighed more than 33 pounds--top officials on the podium began laughing. "I was in such a hurry," Reagan explained, "I wrote my last name first."

He is the Republican Dream Date, a smooth-speaking, polished product of Illinois, as comfortable with Facebook as a face-to-face. John McCain's daughter gushed over him as the future of the party. He blogs for the liberal webzine Huffington Post, which said he sports the best abs in Congress. TMZ trails him like a pop star. And he is two decades younger than Barack Obama. Aaron Schock, 27, hasn't wanted for attention since being elected to the House of Representatives last fall.
