[help|politics] A question promoted from comments

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.
