I really liked the movies Frost/Nixon, Thank You for Smoking, The Social Network and then I found this Doonesbury comic strip. I want to know how to train oneself in this art of obfuscation. I am not saying I want to be (or can be) someone like Nixon, but I am trying to look at it from the perspective of a ethical hacker. How can one learn this kind of political maneuvering, if I can call it that? Can anyone suggest any books/movies for this?
EDIT: It seems that I am being seen as a wannabe bad guy. It's not just about being Nixon. The movies Thank You for Smoking and The Social Network have depicted similar behaviour, and I liked these movies because they kept a non-judgmental undertone (my opinion). My intention was to read/watch something intellectually stimulating. The cancer is not to be hated/feared, but studied and understood.
