Jefferson has beliefs, Burr has none, Part II
Not long ago, I wrote a column about my kids’ fascination with Hamilton and my hope that Hamilton’s endorsement of Jefferson over Burr (because Jefferson had beliefs where Burr had none) could inspire a new generation to require their politicians to actually believe in something other than their own ambition.
This column is not nearly as weighty. My kids’ other obsession is Star Wars (especially my son). Over spring break, we decided to match up each character in Hamilton to a commensurate character in Star Wars. Here’s where we came out. For those of you who also love both Hamilton and Star Wars, I’d love to hear what you think.
