For any political journalist (as once I was) it is the best of times.
Today I made a tiny contribution to the coverage in the Wall Street Journal with a piece on the Commentariolum Petitionis (translated in its most recent version as How to Win Elections) a practical, cynical and eerily modern guide to winning votes that is commonly (and probably correctly) attributed to Marcus Tullius Cicero's younger brother Quintus.
I thought of Robert Kennedy's help to JFK and Jeb Bush's for GWB and Roger Clinton's and Billy Carter's hindrances.
And I wondered what help the younger Santorum brother was giving.
I asked but no one seemed to know.
Is anything fraternal happening out there?
