We all know that being President ages the holder of the position at a rate comparable to suddenly living by dog years (7 x normal human years.) What if it isn't holding the job, but running for the office that causes this effect? Read more about Is there a lesson here?
It's Armistice Day * -- and it's time to remember who WE are.
