I graduated from Big Name U in May with 0 honors or distinctions, little work experience, a squishy liberal arts degree, and a barely acceptable G.P.A. I feel like I wasted a pretty big chunk of my life. Where do I go from here? [more inside]

How can I be like C.J. Cregg?

Maybe it's just the miniature Aaron Sorkin in my head talking, but with the advent of the Obama administration and all, I think it might be cool to try to get a stint as a communications aide/press officer or speechwriter with some kind of progressive campaign or Democratic congressperson.
