Schlesinger

NLT’s own William Voegeli has a first class piece on Arthur Schlesinger in the Opinion Journal. It’s the same piece that appears in the current Claremont Review of Books, but not yet on line. Conclusion: Liberalism (with Schlesinger’s help) can still buy votes, but can’t change minds. A fine, must read article.

Excellent piece. I remember Schlesinger's brilliant (not) comment during the Lewinsky scandal: "We all lie, all the time." It may well say something, perhaps quite a bit, about Schlesinger and many of those he knew best. It said nothing about America.
