The Guy

It's almost time. The President is muttering about Harry Truman. There are no hotel rooms within 100 miles of Washington D.C. It's almost time! Europe is excited. America is excited. Kenya is excited. But what about Pakistan?

He will be loved in Europe forever because of his cosmopolitanism, or if you like, his Omni-Americanness. Loved for just what was supposed to cancel his support in "middle America," wherever that is.

The main thing is that the eight year-long suspension of American diplomacy is over.
