In the entertainment field, an entertainer performs an 'act' on the stage. (The act could be comedy, dance, song, etc.) If the act is really good, one would say, "That's a hard act to follow", meaning the first act was so good, that by comparison any act that follows will seem terrible.Hi,
What does that mean? What does the word act mean here?
Do you think Bill Clinton will be an asset or a liability to Hillary's presidential campaign?
Bush will be an easy act to follow. Bill's approval rating is STILL higher than Chimp's.
