Well, my friends, I used to be a political hack in provincial politics (that's like state politics for my American readers). I did it for about 18 months when I was in my twenties. That's the time to do it - when you can work around the clock, 7 days a week. You know, before you burn out.
Do you watch VEEP on HBO at all? That's what it was like - crazy busy, smart & driven & funny co-workers, lots of stress. Flying by the seat of your pants. Never enough time.
The War Room is about the 1993 Clinton election - it gives you a taste of what it's like during an election.
I even road-tripped down to Seattle to hear Clinton speak AND flew to Toronto to hear George Stephanopoulos as well. Love the well-constructed and expertly delivered speech.
Letting my geek flag fly here today.
The guy I worked for, the guy who led this merry band of round-the-clock political hacks was the master of the quip. He had a saying for EVERYTHING.
So when you get discouraged. When you feel like giving up. When it looks like it just isn't EVER going to happen, don't forget:
