One of the things that business school never prepares you for is the startup grind. Believe me, it’s a grind. Ups, downs, the elations and lows come slathered with the reminder that every step forward takes more effort than the step before.
There’s something about Frank and Claire Underwood, excuse me President Underwood and the First Lady (obviously this contains spoilers), that we respect, not love. But that’s just how Frank would want us to perceive him for he warns us, his co-conspirators, that “The heart can choke the mind when all of its blood comes rushing back to it”. We don’t feel happy when Frank pounds the President’s desk, his desk, two times to end Season 2, because we don’t love him. We feel accomplished, because we conspired with him to secure our man as the President.
