A few days ago, I was on Julie Mason’s morning show on the POTUS channel of SiriusXM. We usually talk about the political story of the moment—or my recent work—and I always enjoy being part of her fast-paced and high-energy segments. On this particular a.m., she tossed me a rather open-ended question, asking what I was thinking about. I didn’t respond with a reference to a particular news story, headline, or tweet.
