"My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over."
Well, almost over. That comment is from Gerald Ford on August 9, 1974, after he was sworn in as President upon the resignation of Richard Nixon.

In 2016, we've suffered through a trauma simply to get a president elected.
In other news, please listen on to hear mood at work in Zika guidelines, the Battle for Mosul, and, of course, in various other themes from the 2016 election cycle.
