So you want to work in the White House... This is funny: the "Survivor's Guide for Presidential Nominees". An actual document prepared by the Brookings Institute for people who have been or are considering being presidentially appointed. The "Survivor's Guide" tone is actually what it reminds me of. It's kind of funny, actually. While the document itself is long (180 pages!) and boring, I take comfort in knowing these things exist somewhere. It's like thinking that in some government safe somewhere there could be a friendly, well-written instruction manual that says "First Extra Terrestrial Contact For Dummies".
(I found this on the Change.gov website - Obama's "Office of the President-Elect website".)
