What you may not know about me is that I love American history, even though I was a Europeanist (tee hee) in college. Those of you who know how much of a romantic I can be may not be surprised by this, but believe me even I find it surprsing sometimes. On my trip to DC last spring I could hardly control the welling up of civic-minded happiness as I walked by the supreme court building, knowing that, in theory, our nation is really cool, and while in practice we are incredibly not, at least we have some important ideas written down that many of us try to stick to, even though it's hard to do and we interpret them so differently. Having those ideas is a big deal.

Anyway, the point is this: I miss President Clinton. I miss the way he talks. I miss having a leader who can put words together intelligently. I miss intelligence overall.

I rambled about other stuff too. Wanna see?
