Can you IMAGINE the meetings going on right now? I mean...did he know that he was in line for this thing? Is it like an Academy Award, where you know you're nominated?
Because if not, I have a feeling that right now, the man and his staff are sweating bullets.
No Pressure! Nothing to prove! You're fine! No worries!
Not so much.
Because you know, and, I've seen it already, that a lot of people are saying he "bought" the thing, but...don't you think that, politically, that would be just about the stupidest thing he could possibly do? Seems like just digging yourself a hole, in my opinion.
Best of luck to you Mr. President, and I hope that you can overcome this honor.
