Ah, history. Where would we be without ya?
The Czar thinks much of history. Today, he is thinking about a belief once shared by American politicians: the best presidents, the thought goes, neither seek the Presidency nor reject the call of history.
There are two ways to interpret that, both of which are correct: first, a good President tends to be drafted by popular demand, and doesnt seek the job for personal gain. Second, never trust a politican who actually wants the job.
Chris Christie might do well to dwell on this.
