Peter Orner, “Jake Arvey in the Lobby of The Standard Club of Chicago, December 1976”

A brief encounter between a seasoned political vet and a seeming rookie/lightweight.

(from StoryQuarterly, issue 42)

Such a short short story, more of a scene, but the characters are distinct and the ideas are interesting. And Google tells me Jake Arvey was a real person.
Here‘s Peter Orner’s homepage.
