Great piece, Julie. Personally, I don't trust anyone who grew up within the last 60 years and didn't take drugs. It indicates a lack of curiosity and a disrespect for peer pressure...neither of which would be a benefit to a President. I mean, when we meet with those other leaders from like Europe and someone takes out a doobie...are we going to be known as the uncool country? I should think not! Everyone remembers Reagan's, "Mr Gorbachev, tear down that wall!" But they forget it was followed by, "And don't bogart that joint!" Seriously, do people really believe Franklin Roosevelt would have been the imaginative, resplendent leader he was if he didn't spend his entire term jacked up on martinis and cuban cigars 24/7?!

One piece of advice I would give Hill, if I may, at this juncture...If she is going to compare herself to any other US Prez, I wish she would stay away from LBJ...for those of us who lived through that pulling and possible Kennedy assassination complicity brings me little comfort to hear her compare herself with the guy who inherited a senseless war and immediately upon taking office decided to escalate and expand it.
