    I was more moved by the older portrayal of the characters than the young ones. Don't ask me on further details, lest my manliness be put into question.

    I'm just impressed that you've seen it. I keep trying to trick my boyfriend into watching it, but he's been pretty stealthy so far.

    In all honesty, it's rather easy to see. Most romances have a seemingly 5-10 year span of attention by its primary audience. The Notebook was rather new, and thus I saw it within the past 2 or 3 years.

    I have opened myself up to the possibility of watching said "chick flicks." Some can be quite good, even if they seem to bask in their girliness (Confessions of a Shopaholic) It actually inspired me recently to try to look at political romance dramas or comedies. I find it peculiar that within a 3 year span in the 1990s, we had two romantic-comedy-dramas that focused on the President of the United States being a bachelor of some sort or another.

    I don't analyze that much..but I do find that most Rom-coms or straight romances follow a pretty typical progression... meet-love-separate-discover-happy/bittersweet ending.

    Yeah, I agree. For instance, I went with family (when I had nothing better to do, of course!) to watch Letters to Juliet. I thought it was pretty darn good, especially with what seemed to be a somewhat unique premise, but I nearly gagged on my soda (it may have been influenced with how ungodly close we were to the screen in such a small theater) when I saw some of the ending ("oh no I fell harmlessly to the ground!" "oh my, god, are you okay my love?" "I'm ****ing awesome. Let's kiss" "Okay."-end scene).

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
