Dear Dairy:

Day 2 with the strategists. I told them that although I’m resigned to the notion that my Presidency will not be fully appreciated for hundreds of years, if then, I’d still like to know what I can do to stop people from using the phrase ‘worst President of all time’ so damn often.

The strategist said I might want to convey the idea that I had been misled into my policies and been used as the instrument of evil people to achieve goals I was really unaware of. If I were merely the well-meaning marionette of an evil puppet-master, people would surely respond with sympathy.

I looked over at Uncle Dick but he shook his head ‘no’ real curt-like. So much for that.

They’ll like me when I’m dead,
