I haven’t paid a lot of attention to politics in my life, simply because government in general rather bores me, but somehow this year, the whole thing seems to be reaching critical mass. I thought this quote was apropos.
A politician is a man who thinks of the next election; while the statesman thinks of the next generation.
-James Freeman Clarke, preacher and author (1810-1888)
May God give us a statesman!
