Listening: Hope Has A Place - Enya

I've finally fond an assistant. Today I was speaking with Jane over at Emily's List and she said I would never guess who's resume crossed her desk this morning. Xavier Clifford Whitaker.

I've crossed paths with Xavier a few times in my career. He's a smart-ass and too pretty for his own good, but he's damn good at his job. The last time I worked with him was about a year ago on a congressional campaign. Things were a mess, no one there on the assistant level had the slightest idea what to do. Then Xavier walked through the door. I said, "Thank God," and gave him a desk. A week later the place was running smoother than alot of campaigns I've seen in my time.

So I called Xavier up and gave him the job of my assistant. We set up a meeting and he'll start IMMEDIETLY.

Hopefully he'll get here before my new furniture.

"Too pretty for his own good?" You wound me, Kate, I thought I was the pretty one.

Yes, didn't you notice the actually ugly pillows were recovered with pink fuzzy fabric?

I just threw those aside. Pink is where I draw the line, Mel.

*giggle* Just slip the covers off, the more "manly" fabric is still there.

Alright. I'm going to be unconscious for about an hour, alright?

Oh calm down, Mark. You don't want to look jealous do you? Just because I've hired an attractive young man to sit outside my office all day.

I'm not jealous. I'm just confused- Where do I stand now?

Well don't be confused. Your standing is not at all changed by Xavier's presence. Now get back to work like a good, pretty, deputy.
