Maggie Mae

25 Oct

If Maggie Mae were a political candidate, the lyrics directed to her in the Rod Stewart classic would be right on the money.

“It’s late September and I really should be back at school” could easily be the sentiment of a young campaign worker who decided to forgo a semester in order to give 100 percent to the race.

Ditto for “I laughed at all of your jokes” because the young worker wants to stay on the good side of the boss in the hope of landing a cushy job after the election.

Should that not come to pass, Maggie quickly becomes a case of “What have you done for me lately?” with lines such as “Oh Maggie, I couldn’t have tried any more, “You stole my soul” and “I wished I’d never seen your face.”

The verdict: At campaign headquarters, she sounds and acts like a candidate, but Maggie still is an unknown quantity on the campaign trail. Give her a grade of incomplete as a candidate until we get more information.
