WSJ: Bernanke on Baseball: A Beacon for D.C.

People decry the absence of leadership in Washington these days. My response: Look no further than the home-team dugout at Nationals Park.

Under Manager Davey Johnson’s confident, laid-back leadership, the Washington Nationals, defying all preseason conventional wisdom, have claimed the 2012 championship of the National League Eastern Division and the best regular-season record in Major League Baseball. Who knows what’s ahead? Unabashed Nats fans—and I’ve been one since the team arrived in town in 2005—can only hope.
