Lovers' Vows

I call into question the theatrical production in Mansfield Park, composed so brilliantly by Jane Austen (to whom I owe my existence).

I watch the daily squabbles between my dear Hillary Clinton and Sir Barack Obama, and I cannot help questioning whether they would do better as team, uniting their political party, just as lovers do when they take their vows. Could they not join for the sake of the people?

I posed that question, and this week I received answers.

Hillary: Yes

Obama: No

All the more reason for that fine-looking woman to get my vote. My dear Hillary, I am hopelessly yours.
