What would Dean Acheson, Averell Harriman, George Kennan, John McCloy Jr., Charles Bohlen, & Robert Lovett - Six Friends and The World They Made - think of the charge that Obama is "elitist" because of his California remarks?
And what would the 20th Century Wise Men think of the 21st Century, 24/7 media corps (of which GMP1 is a bit player in) who report every single detail (and then some) of today's leaders?
We don't know the answers any better than you do. And it makes us uneasy.
Not that it (really) matters.
Because the times they are a changing (and have changed).
So just hold on tight and try to do your best. Like always.
