Hillary: the new-model Nader (or, the reason the Dems lose elections)
In this most busy of political seasons, I’ve been ingesting way too much punditry (the left-wing and MOR kind; I can’t abide conservatism in any of its guises). Why has no one made the comparison yet: our own N.Y. State Senator, the one who voted to go to Iraq, is clearly playing the spoiler, a la the once awesome Mr. N, and serving as just one more reminder that the reason the Repubs/rightwingers win elections is because they are organized and speak with one voice. Lefties like diversity to the point where nothing is agreed upon, and it all tumbles down into the current economy, the current war, and the current Chimp in Charge of all our fates….
