ianrandalstrock asked a question in comments which has more or less gotten lost in the shuffle, I think, so I'm bumping it up here for discussion.

I wonder if I might impose a bit on your much larger readership for a political quote of my own for which I've been searching. It's older than yours, but I can't recall where I read or heard it. It was to the effect (I may not have the exact phrasing) that the speaker/writer couldn't understand why any president would run for re-election, since the presidency is the greatest job in the world from which to retire.

I really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

Guess I struck out with your friends, too. Bummer. I'll keep looking (and thanks for the extra visibility; I didn't realize this one was going to be so difficult).

Have you tried Project Wombat? It's a mailing list for librarians trying to run down obscure info.

Nope. Guess they're next.
