I've heard people say we can never know for certain what it feels like to be someone else. But is that really true? Is it never possible to know for certain what it feels like to be someone else?
Yesterday, I was with my friend Don for lunch. Don and I go back a long ways and we know each other pretty well.
At one point during our lunch, he said something that was so profound it went completely over my head and I couldn't even begin to fathom what he meant. I felt lost and stupid.
Then I suddenly realized: "Surely, this is what it feels like to be a politician!"
