This governing business is getting really complicated for that kid from the Southside of Chicago by way of Hawaii, Harvard, Kenya and Indonesia. It looked like so much fun when it was all about dress up, going places in a jet and having an army of people tell you how smart, articulate, handsome and charming you were. Now it is increasingly becoming a drag where you can't even bow to an emperor without getting bad press anymore.
