When a certain President Nixon was told by his advisors that it would be better for him to resign, you have no idea just how fast and furious his men in the cupboards got cracking until deep into the night shredding all those files, papers and top secret documents. Heck, they were so good at what they did that not even the great J Edgar could nab them. Or did he kick the bucket by that time? Destroy sensitive documents Quincy councilors before the next election arrives. Because there’s just no telling.
You might not be coming back after the elections are over. You might have been booted out of office. And whose fault is that? How many town meetings did you attend, and weren’t you even listening? Anyhow, when a certain President Obama left office there was hardly any need to shred all those thousands of documents. Because you see, this guy and his staff thought it just might come in handy before the next crew arrived. At that time, fingers were crossed that a Mrs. Clinton, who rumor has it, not only shredded thousands of documents but trashed like amount emails too.
Only then she forgot to dump some. Or so the story goes. The fingers were crossed because it was thought that this would be something of a smooth transition. All this old lady would be doing was carrying on the work that the previous administration started all those years ago. But now there’s a new sheriff in town. Here’s an old tradition. The outgoing president writes a letter and leaves this letter in the top drawer of his desk for the next president to read when he takes over. No-one knows whether the incumbent read it or shred it.
