Wall Street Blues

I saw a brief statement from George Bush today that counseled patience while the details of the bailout plan are worked out. He was speaking from San Antonio, and he projected a sense of weariness and the impression that he can hardly wait for January, when he goes home and leaves this mess to his successor. I can’t quite imagine why anyone would want the job at this point, though, or who would be up to it. And I’m being bipartisan here; that includes all the candidates.
No kidding. What a lousy, thankless profession the Presidency is. By the time the rivers of history polish your record, you're long dead...
