If Bush wins the the election he will have done so after alienating nearly all of the intellectual elite, left and right, but mainstream political figures will be either -still- standing by their man or on the sidelines wondering what happened. Liberals will say the failure is due to a lack of democracy, but the failure will be one that democracy alone could produce.

And I'm sorry but I have not patience for shit like this. Kerry's campaign sucks. The level of political cowardice, of passivity, is mind-bending.
I just wish that Dems could put on their game faces and try to sell the guy a little bit instead of constantly writing his epitaph. He's really a good man, you know. He's spent his life in public service, trying to do the right thing, working hard and carrying our agenda. He's our most liberal nominee in decades. He's smart and energetic and he's never been tainted by corruption or scandal. Is it so hard for Democrats to get behind a man like this or are we just as shallow as everybody else? Would we too be happier with a brand name in a suit?
So now supporters of middling Democrats are reduced to claiming the moral high ground that was once the domain of earnest reformers and left-wing fatalists.

I'm as fond of Clinton hagiography as anyone on the planet...

My god, I don't know what to say.
