Bayh Says It's Time to Make "Common Cause"
. . . with moderates and independents. The Democrats have gone too far left
. This is interesting stuff. The dangers of populism are, of course, worth noting. But there is also something very heartening about being able to agree with Evan Bayh when he notes that Americans just don't like it when those they elect try to tell them how to think and what is best for them and then try to force it on them. We still
will not be ruled. And it's very fitting, it seems to me, that this sentiment is emerging most dramatically in Massachusetts--the cradle of the Revolution and home of the Adams'. Let us hope that we imitate John more than Sam in the end . . . though tonight may be a good night to toast the old brewer.
