Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Sophocles and the Democrats

A systematic accounting of the nature and specifics of the coming Greek-style tragedy facing the Democrats this summer can be read here. Tragedy, defined as the undoing of a man (or a party) by his own flaws can be seen unfurling all around the Democrats this season.

The thrust of it:

The tragic flaw of the Democratic Party is the hubris that allows it to style itself as the only force interested in the welfare of minorities and the poor, and the only party committed to real democracy. It is not accustomed to its own internal processes being subjected to much critical media scrutiny.

Now this is the kind of theater that makes politics so interesting.

I had to LOL at this line:

The Party may very well find itself nominating the weaker candidate in Denver

What? Clinton is a huge negative. Obama is an honest liberal who is attractive even to me, a traditional conservative, if nothing else simply for he being who he really is. Clinton is evil, and McCain is a "maverick" liberal. I would vote for Obama long before I would vote for any either of them. Obama wins in a landslide, with 60% of the pop vote, or darn close to it...

Obama is an honest liberal who is attractive even to me, a traditional conservative, if nothing else simply for he being who he really is.

That doesn't make sense. Even assuming that Obama is an honest liberal, and not a dishonest hard-core leftist.


I'm starting to think that Clinton may be the most conservative of these three candidates.

It certainly is interesting...
