When Tom Perez and I met at a Takoma Park restaurant the other day, the former Democratic National Committee chair was just a few weeks removed from knee surgery. So when we were offered seats at a high-top table, he declined. Being up high would be too uncomfortable, he explained, and he needed a place to sit where he could stretch his legs and spread out a bit. To me, it felt a little like a metaphor.
