How I wish that I had listened to Her Majesty five years ago over that sixth gin and Dubonnet.
"We need you as both President of the United States and General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party in November 2012. We can of course arrange all the paperwork with ease."
"I know, Lilibet, I know. But I have made a commitment to the voters of Lanchester and to the undergraduates of Collingwood."
Will the two chances ever again coincide in either of our lifetimes?
