Europe is difficult to coordinate, and our main deficit may not even lie in this area of finance and economics, but in foreign and security policy.

I definitely wasn’t cool in high school. I really wasn’t. I did belong to many of the clubs and was in leadership on yearbook and did the musical theater route, so I had friends in all areas. But I certainly did not know what to wear, did not know how to do my hair, all those things.
