how odd it was to belatedly find myself empathizing with Don Draper

That's interesting, because when I dashed through season 3 earlier this summer, I really started to dislike Draper. He was just too perfect and too dramatic and too precious to the director. I felt like if one more random woman dropped everything to throw herself at Don Draper I would scream. I felt like "He's not all that!"

And I feel like we get all his angst when there are other characters of whom I would rather see more.

Though I agree with your basic point that it's not a show about empathy. I think it's a show about history.
