In my childhood I recall my grandmother reveling in the Camelot years of the Kennedy's. As a teen I recall voting for Carter with the zeal of a righteous 'know-it-all'. In my early 20's I was relieved to find that my voting record did not factor into my service as an intern in the Reagan White House. Phew! You see, 1980’s Washington had a category for what might be perceived as ‘youthful indiscretion’. It was forgiven.
