The New York Times last week named Matt Yglesias as part of a blogging 'brat pack', a small group of Washington bloggers who have become part of the city's political-media establishment. Their blogs 'have become destination reading for — and respected by — the city’s power elite. Indeed, arguably they are themselves approaching power-elite status'.

I never got around to asking Yglesias what he thought about this description, but in a short interview below, we did talk about Obama's recent Libya speech, about the Administration's foreign policy more generally, and Obama's domestic priorities.

Here's Matt Yglesias' blog, which is a must-read if you're into US politics.
