Looking Presidential: Expat Frustration

Elections recently passed in Buenos Aires and of course I didn’t vote.  It’s just like in the States except I have an excuse: here I can’t. The biggest difference was that I really have no idea what’s at stake in the politics here and it’s not like the advertisements or what anyone talked about highlighted the differences between the candidates.  In face, I wasn’t privy to any cool political conversations.  People I hang out with apparently don’t like to chat about politics.

This doesn’t mean I’m not interested in US politics.  On the contrary, I follow politics a lot, listening to a ton of NPR podcasts and news.  Well, recently there’s a lot of talk about the idea of “looking presidential.”
