Re: the Clintons.. I feel like they believe everything that goes wrong for Barack goes right for them. Their ultimate best-case is to damage Barack enough that she wins the nomination through political sleight-of-hand. Roll call! Their next-best-case scenario is McCain winning in November. Then she's positioned to rescue us in 2012 (assuming we still exist by then). Third-best is that they continue their Democratic Party Self-Destruct Mode. Barack wins--barely--but is so weakened that once again, we will need rescue. He's really looking like Bambi lately. I'm not too worried at the moment, we still have three months. That's an eternity in politics. Right?
Yes, and Bush blew the WTC.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
