Rex Stout, in the voice of Archie Goodwin:

If your ego is in good shape, you will pretend you are surprised if a National Chairman calls to tell you his party wants to nominate you for President of the United States, but you’re not really surprised.

Stout, Rex, Champagne for One (New York: Bantam, 2009), p. 3 (Double-volume with Too Many Cooks).
