The Last of the First
It's occurred to me that the Bush family is, in many ways, kind of a Bizarro-version of The Kennedy family. Of course, All egalitarian, political families of all persuasions scare me a little. Remember, this is America: aristocracy = bad. However, I'd be lying if I said that I didn't think JFK, RFK, and, finally Ted Kennedy, didn't have something real to say about how to make this country better. But, then again, the other problem with dynasties: Too much power leads to corruption, hatred, and death. Especially if the next guy is more ruthless.
Anyway, let me get off my allegorical soapbox. The elder statesman of the Left stll has some gas in his tank. And he's dousing the President with it. Enjoy.
