You don’t get to see it at the beginning of a new Presidency. It takes a few years.
I wonder what is on their minds? Why the change from wide eyed puppy just found a bone eyes to scanning the room, nodding, cold, calculating, eyes that have seen things that none of “us” get to know or see!
Aliens? Secret plots to blow up the Earth? The food is really bad at the White House and you don’t want to toss your cookies in front of everyone? What is it Mr Presidents?
Do some of us want to know what you know? You must feel very, very important knowing what you know that no-one else knows. Do we envy you or pity you? Is this look that you develop a good thing or a bad thing? Lots of questions but unless you walk in the shoes and be a President of the US, none of us will ever know.
Purpose? Is this the look of someone with so much felt purpose, or is this the look of true concern of life and death?
I am sorry for you to have to go through this. It is a job that you can’t stop, escape, have a weekend away from it. It must be incredibly imprisoning!
So, when you look out among your country Mr Presidents, there is one person who understands.
