I got an email about some of the instruments that will be used in the show - apparently there will be a four-person Circle Flute. Flute orgy! Bow chicka bow wow!

It's not really insidery- it's just a fact that lately when Obama endorses a candidate they lose. The Right hates him and the Left is kinda over him or sees him as being Establishment and/or ineffectual.

I'm sure he'll do some stumping for whoever becomes the candidate but it will be very targeted.

People want Biden because they think he's best suited to go after Trump on his level. He doesn't need Obama for that.

Obama is not coming out for Biden.

He stumped for Hillary and look where it got us. The Midterms put the nail in the coffin - pretty much every candidate he stumped for lost. That's why Organizing For Action was finally disbanded a couple months ago - it was a continuation of the Obama For America campaign. The thing we were best at was Electoral politics but any action we took for a candidate would have been viewed as an endorsement by Obama which doesn't mean a whole lot nowadays. They wanted to set us free to focus our efforts elsewhere. Plus he has a set pool of donors and he wanted to focus their resources on his foundation but mostly it was the fact that his endorsement doesn't mean anything.

The two things that stick out in my mind from the series closing out were the image of Peggy in the hallway with the cigarette in her mouth which I absolutely loved and then Don on the cliff meditating or whatever he was doing which wasn't necessarily what I wanted/expected but it did make sense. He always wanted to try to be better (or wanted to want to try to be better) and he had made some incremental improvements over the series but he was still Don.

My theory on this is because a lot of them were built before you couldn't go to the terminals without a ticket.

I remember when I was a kid, the entire family would go to the airport to see people off when they were flying places - we'd all walk right into the terminal, sit at the gate, and sit there waving goodbye as grandma/grandpa/whomever took off.
