DC Observation

I was interested to note an air of adrenalized anxiety among the many young politicos I met in DC--something familiar to me from friends in the theater world. You're only as good as your last show, and once it's over, you're scrabbling desperately for your next job. The phrase "period of post-election unemployment" was bandied about, and there was a lot of showing off, horning in, and exchanging numbers. Seems like a bad way to live--unless you're very young.
