one reason not to want to be President …

… is that you become the victim for millions of people who apparently have nothing better to do than to infer all manner of grand conclusions from every trivial detail about how you talk, dress, act, and so forth. If you find yourself with nothing better to do than to be amused by such ‘gilding or staining of all objects with the colours borrowed from internal sentiment’ (my apologies to Hume), you can entertain yourself with readers’ comments here. I guarantee that you will learn nothing whatsoever about the president, the president-elect, or their wives. On the other hand, you might learn something about a certain subset of the readers of the NYTimes.
