i wouldnt take that job for all the tea in china. it is thankless. it is brutal. it is a very, very tough job. he didnt need it.
he was fairly good at it. if he had taken down the fop, like he could have, he likely would have been mayor for life. but it’s a job no one could do perfectly, ever.

he could have just sat back and gotten richer.
