This could happen to any of us...

...when the party is over.

The euphoria of any grand, life-altering event, is often followed by a great letdown. When you work in the Nation's capital for the Federal government, you learn to take the whole transition thing in stride. That's a subject for another piece. Meanwhile, if you go to the website of the "Office of the President-Elect," you will find an online application for political appointments in the Obama administration. Trust me, boys and girls, it is a waste of time. You can be sure that some twit barely out of college, who spent the last 12 to 15 months stuffing envelopes at a storefront office in south Chicago for "The One," has a much better chance of getting the coveted position of Junior Confidential Assistant to the Deputy Undersecretary for Administrative Operations, than someone who applies for the same job online, never mind the losers depicted in this video.
