After stuff like this, it will be very hard for the champions of Barack Obama’s ethereal way-with-words to come to terms with stuff like this. Perhaps it will never come to that but, if it does, the intellectual contortions required to maintain basic psychological equilibrium will be –either way it goes (though naturally I have my own hunch regarding the matter)– interesting to watch.
But dreams –of any kind– can be hard to let go of. Sometimes it’s not even possible. We just can’t take –as T.S. Eliot suggested– too much reality.
