A couple of years ago--or maybe longer--there was a post and discussion about how early Hillary Clinton had to get up in the morning, to attend to her hair and makeup, versus how early Obama had to get up, during the 2008 primary.

Can anyone help?

Books on Fanfare has been discussed, but in a theoretical way. The thread on The Stand makes me want to re-read it, and makes me want to be able to discuss it with MeFites. May I shoehorn it into Fanfare? [more inside]
