157. Things always look different in hindsight.
But even back then I could feel that our economic boom wasn't really a boom, that there was a hollowness to all the good feelings, that a lot of people were being left behind for such "good times".

Now I see a lot of people have not only their finger on it, but their whole hand so they can SMACK down that faux and unsustainable optimism. It was the first Democratic president who's actually won in a long time; how could we not lap it up? Even if it was artificial sweetener in the end.

It takes the real thing (in Obama) to recognize the fake. (in the Clintons)
