Will anyone care?

While some people take themselves and their blogs WAY too seriously, I clearly do not.

Candidate\'s Wives


David Brooks had some interesting insight into the relationship between presidential candidates and their wives. From his and Gail Collins’ blog at the New York Times:

Gail, Here’s why I’m not a politician. First, I can never imagine believing that I am qualified to be president of the United States. Second, I can never imagine meeting a person of the opposite sex who also believes I am qualified to be president of the United States. Third, if I did in fact meet such a person, I certainly would never marry her. I’d get a restraining order.

As a result, I’ve always felt political couples are bound by a joint delusion. They are both so nutso beyond the bend as to believe that one of them should be leader of the free world.
