    On the other hand Big gets a lesson on how poltics really works in this country. It is very interesting. When I first started watching in the 80's I'd say, "there is no way the parties can disagree so completely". It is a sport. A game. With consequences to be sure. These are a bunch of power hungry egotists, and oddly they are also public servents. It is an odd combination.

    FWIW..... back in the day I used to be up late a lot. I'd put on c-span hoping to get to sleep. There was Newt Gingrich talking constantly to an empty house.... but he was still on air. Say what you will about the guy.... but he is VERY smart.... and his capacity to work and chase his goals is (was) nothing short of astonishing.

    It is kind of funny when you see a Senator or Representative pontificating in an empty room, just for the sake of the cameras. The camera is obviously the biggest audience available, but it's funny regardless.
