I doubt Hillary would have done things much differently, Elizabeth, (bit more quietly, perhaps). There’s a term with alcoholics called “hitting bottom.” Until they find themselves waking up with their faces buried in someone’s lawn, you can’t help them. As a Canadian, I see the same thing happening with your country. Four years of Donald Trump will hopefully show the American public what it means to “hit bottom.” Maybe then, they’ll listen to people like you and clean up Washington. Stick with it, Elizabeth. You’re one of the good people and, God knows, Washington needs a few, especially now — and especially in four years when I hope you’ll run.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
