I’m a little bit envious of, and extremely happy for, DCM, who’s in Little Rock as we speak working on the Clark presidential campaign. This is always an exciting time in politics, fresh with passion and promise. But when I became a journalist a lifetime ago I signed away my rights to get personally involved in campaigns. It’s a good bargain – I pretty much always get to write about the campaigns, and the journalist’s ringside seat is a great one. But it’s a tradeoff for sure.
