***Warning: Politics, not poetry***
but maybe the true dividing line
is whether you
watched "The West Wing" and enjoyed it
or you didn't watch "The West Wing"
(or you watched it once and didn't enjoy it
or you watched it weekly but only
because you had to share the TV with someone
who still had a crush on Martin Sheen).
I could say Bartlett for president.
I could even say Sheen for president.
For decades, I've wanted to say Patrick Leahy for president.
But I'm saying Obama for president.
And if the people need to elect a president they feel
they can sit down and have a beer with,
get down to the taverns now.
