Don't expect quality, just enjoy it.
interesting thought mistress, and would certainly warrant the drinking… but would people be down with strange drunken post-mortem/semi-funeral drunkscandal? Just that I think personally my only reactions would be either
I think that’s a very safe no.

Just thinking of all the fascinating complications that would come out of a presidential divorce is making me excited - let alone a marriage too. And then how would that work? Would she still be a fixer? Would she work at the White House? Think of all the questions of her own independence and agency and dreams - it would be really intriguing.
