T-minus how long?

It must be a strange time to be an agency political appointee. It is also a strange time to be connected to the federal government because everything just slows down. There are few ideas coming out of the administration because it is focused on locking in the initiatives it has undertaken. And then there are the departures.

Just a peek into the world of a political appointee: I got a note from one person over the weekend and he noted that there are only "514 days left to make an impact." That was Friday, so that only leaves 510 as of today.
