Thanks for the notes clarifying about the 22nd Amendment. This series
has been quite enjoyable, although it stole the "most issues in a month"
thunder from 58.5 :-P
However, there are quite a few more references that non-Americans might
not get. From a quick session of homework:
G.O.P. -- "Grand Old Party", nickname of the Republican Party
Elephants -- Same; the Republican Party's logo is an elephant
Donkeys -- Symbol of the Democratic Party
Potus -- Presidency Of The United States
Which brings sense to the otherwise rather cryptic #316:
> criticism of
> potus: "undue harm"; critics:
> torturers: donkeys

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we
summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
