Ponder This For a While

June 11, 2016

From Elizabeth Drew.  (I have long admired the journalism of Drew.  Her Washington Journal (1973-74) looks down from the shelves where I sit to write this blog.  She would make for a perfect coffee drinking partner and conversationalist one afternoon as we sorted out the problems.)

“It’s one thing to say, as numerous people now have, that Trump doesn’t have the temperament or knowledge or curiosity that are the requirements for anyone who occupies the White House. Trying to envision the candidate in the Oval Office and asking whether he belongs there wasn’t required in any other presidential election in modern history.”

I would need to venture as far back to President Andrew Johnson to think of another person who was also deemed unsuitable to sit in the office.
