The Hillary Democrats
These people are the key to the 2008 US presidential election
What Hillary and Begala are saying is politically incorrect, but it is also patently true.
I can see enough of these people staying home if Obama gets the nomination to give McCain the presidency.

Might mad-bomber McCain go nativist/anti-immigrant (sidling up to racism) to try and win these votes? Ugh.

People who talk about real things instead of pandering to prejudices get frozen out of the process.
[McCain] berated Tarheel Republicans for linking Barack, the Rev. Wright and local Democrats, and denounced a conservative talk show host who introduced him for mocking Barack’s middle name.
Which was decent of him.
People forget. In 1976, Carter... in Philadelphia, talked about preserving the “ethnic purity” of the neighborhoods.
I didn’t know that.
Dukakis’ veto of a Pledge-of-Allegiance-to-the-Flag bill, his opposition to capital punishment, his pride in being “a card-carrying member of the ACLU...”
He was right about the pledge (get rid of it), almost right about the second matter (the almost seamless garment or some crimes forfeit your right to live but very few) and libertarianism has the answer on civil liberties and it’s not in the culture wars (mostly a sideshow in what is supposed to be an impartial constitutional system and free market).

From Chronicles.

More from me and Deacon Jim.
