He doesn't look a bit like Robert Redford, but Bob Woodward is probably the best-known journalist in the world. In 1973, the young Washington Post reporter, along with colleague Carl Bernstein, uncovered the festering center of the Nixon administration, and its leading role in the Watergate scandal. The result, of course, was the first presidential resignation in American history. The duo subsequently won the Pulitzer Prize, and got really, really famous. Their bestselling book All the President's Men became a movie, which as everybody knows starred Redford as Woodward (and Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein). To date he's written 18 books on American politics, and one odd one (Wired) about the life and death of John Belushi. He's won just about every journalism award there is (including another Pulitzer, as part of the Post team-coverage of the 9-11 attacks). He's still a writer and editor at the paper, and a Washington insider with quite a few fascinating stories to tell. The superstar journalist —best known for being pals with Deep Throat and taking down Nixon — presents his own State of the Union at the Mahaffey Theater.
