It's a pretty good gig.
The one damper on the whole thing is you have a lot of folks who want to kill you, compared to every other job on earth. But you've also got the best security system on earth.
For god's sakes, we've had the first black President for 4 years, and about a quarter of the country is convinced he wants to ruin America, and nobody's come remotely close to scratching him.
I go with being President is a "good gig."
