mistake nearly everyone makes. Money is the McMansion in Sarasota that
starts falling apart after ten years. Power is the old stone building
that stands for centuries. I can’t respect someone who doesn’t see the
There’re two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong or
useless pain, the sort of pain that’s only suffering. I have no patience
for useless things. Moments like this require someone who will act or do

President elected Garrett Walker. Do I like him? No. Do I believe in
him? That’s beside the point. Any politician that gets 70 million votes
has tapped into something larger than himself, larger than even me as
much as I hate to admit it. Looking that winning smile, those trusting
eyes. I clung to him early on, and made myself vital. After 22 years in
congress, I can smell which way the wind is going. Jim Matthews, his
right honorably Vice President, Former Governor of Pennsylvania. He did
his duty in delivering the Keystone State. Bless his heart. And now
they’re about to put him out to pasture. But he looks happy, now doesn’t
he? For some, it’s simply the size of the chair. Linda Vasquez, Walker’s
chief of staff. I got her hired. She’s a women, check. And a Latina,
check. But more important than that, she’s as tough as two-dollar steak.
Check, check, check. When it comes to the White House, you not only need
the keys in your back pocket, you need the gate keeper. As for me, I’m
just a lowly house majority whip. I keep things moving in a Congress,
choked by pettiness, and lassitude. My job is to clear the pipes, and
keep the sludge moving. But I won’t have to be a plumber much longer.

They’ve done us a great favor. We’re no longer bond by allegiances. We
serve no one. We live by one rule, and one rule only: Never again will
we allow ourselves to be put in such a position.
I almost pity him. He didn’t choose to be put on my platter. When I
carve him up and toss him to the dogs, only then will he confront that
brutal inescapable truth.
Well, you certainly have my undivided attention.
You might very well think that but I couldn’t possibly comment. It’s
late. I hope you’ll understand that I want to sleep on all of this. I
never make such big decision so long after sunset and so far from
We are in the same boat now. Take care not to tip it over, I can only
save one of us from drowning.
Honestly, do you really think these things just take care of
I respect your opinion and I appreciate you sharing it with me, but I am
not going to change my mind.
What a martyr craves more than anything is a sword to fall on, so you
sharpen the blade, hold it at just the right angle and then 3, 2, 1…
You don’t want to work anywhere you’re not willing to fired from.
Treading water is the same as drowning for people like you and me.
Are you interested in my advice on this or do you just want me to
deliver the message?
