I went to a fundraiser for a presidential candidate last night. It was held at a club that has been described as “Hollywood’s one-stop shop for conspicuous nightlife consumption.” On a regular night, I could never get into that club.
The candidate spoke about changing the country for the poor, to people who’d paid more than a week’s wages to see him speak (and oddly, try to touch him) for 20 minutes.
It made me sad to be there.
I always hope for someone who is different, who really wants to try something different. And always there is just so much talk, so much talk.
