Is the presidency just too big to handle? John Dickerson, co-host of "CBS This Morning" penned a lengthy cover story for The Atlantic on how the magnitude of the office itself might be its own greatest impediment. He sat down with Atlantic editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg for an interview in the new "Face the Nation" studio to dive deep into the scale of the presidency. JEFFREY GOLDBERG: Hello, and welcome to the first and possibly last edition of "Face the Atlantic." I'm Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor-in-chief of The Atlantic and my guest is John Dickerson, Atlantic contributing writer who also has a day job at CBS, co-host of "CBS This Morning," former moderator of "Face the Nation" and author of The Atlantic magazine's cover story, "How the Presidency Became Impossible."

With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: President Trump used an Indiana rally Thursday to soothe conservative fears that he’s going to make too many concessions to the North Koreans. “I think it’s going to be a very big success,” Trump said of the June 12 summit in Singapore with Kim Jong Un. “But my attitude is: If it isn’t, it isn’t. Okay? If it isn’t, it isn’t. … You have to (say) that, because you don’t know.” Everyone is excited about the homecoming of the three American prisoners, but there’s growing anxiety in the national security firmament that the president might be too hungry for a big win. Trump has appeared intoxicated at times by the possibility he could win the Nobel Peace Prize and relishes the chants of “Nobel” that have become standard fare at his rallies. He’s also been ratcheting up expectations that history will be made at his summit. Announcing the time … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Trump reassures anxious hawks that he’s willing to walk away from North Korea talks
President Trump takes credit for progress in talks between the Koreas as his supporters chant “Nobel” at a rally in Michigan. Michael Scherer authored the Big Idea in today's edition as James is on vacation. We have a full slate of Post authors for you this week before James returns on Monday. With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: When it comes to electoral politics, this is not normal long ago became the new normal. The latest transgression by the transgressor in chief just doesn’t seem to move the needle. (Send a bodyguard to raid a doctor’s office? Yawn.) Barring something major, like firing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, it’s not clear the daily outrages have much more downside. And that’s good news for President Trump, who needs the upside of outrage to stay afloat.Trump’s big gambit has so far paid off — at least for him. He broke onto the scene as a political punchline making an argument no … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Trump’s big gambit has paid off — at least for him.

For Europeans (or at least those in the EU), who don’t need any special documents to work or live in France, it's a far easier process than for their friends across the pond. For us Yankees, there are some unique and frustrating hoops to jump through, from the process of securing a visa to retaking driver’s tests to providing a "dental history of your ex-lovers". OK, maybe not that much, but it's not far off it. Straight from the mouths of those who’ve managed to do it, we’ve taken a look at some of the hardest things about moving to France as an American. Gathering mountains of paperwork Photo: Peter Alfred Hess/Flickr Before they even set foot in France, Americans are often flabbergasted by the number of documents that must be printed, photocopied, scanned, translated, certified, copied again, attested… and so on.
