I cannot stop thinking about Claire in thr 3rd season of the House of Cards. I undestand why she’d want to be the UN ambassador, but it’s hard to comprehend why she consistently sabotages her work? She just can’t keep it together, saying all the wrong things to the wrong people in the worst possible moments. Then she does a great job as a First Lady, and the better she does, the more needy and confused she becomes. she is too cool and accomplished for a mid-life crisis. Is it envy? Does she want the office for herself? If yes, why can’t she keep her mouth shut and do a good job in the UN?
This is actually very human to second guess and reflect, no doubts, but when the stakes are that high, it does not look like a convincing storyline… any theories?
