HANDS DOWN. Can I just say that my best moment as editor of The American Prospect came -- no-brainer here, dude -- when I parred the 16th at Rock Creek last summer. It�s a fierce Par 4 -- just a slight dogleg left, but a ribbon-thin fairway with dense spinach on both sides and a postage-stamp green that I nailed in regulation with a beautiful seven iron from the short cut. I�m a novice linksman, so any par is a small miracle. But to par the Rock Creek 16th -- well, just let me say it was a great moment for liberal journalism.
