Congratulations, you’ve just won the lottery, and hired your own personal Karl Rove. Elections are coming up, and your victory is assured in whichever race you choose to enter. The only question is - what position do you want? And why?
I’ll go first:
United States Senator. You’d have to drag me kicking and screaming into the White House - I’d be scared of what the job would do to me, and terrified of what I’d do to the world if I screwed up. No, thank you. And the House of Representatives is a never-ending re-election campaign, writ large. I’ll pass.
The Senate, though - that, I would love. The chance to have a real voice in national policy. A tradition of strong rhetoric and deep thought. For that matter, who wouldn’t want to serve in a legislative body that can trace its heritage to Rome herself?
