I can’t remember the last time everyone I know was talking about the same thing. I mean there are obvious examples like 9/11 and the 2000 election aftermath and Bill Clinton’s, uh, indiscretions and subsequent impeachment. What other past national obsessions come to you?
As for “regular”, even presidential, elections they don’t seem to come close, for me, as to how all consuming this one is. For obvious reasons. So I’m just curious what you guys think will fill the void in a couple weeks? The weather? Every restaurant the Obamas go to after they retire to Kalorama?
