A brief note on American electoral politics

July 8, 2011

With a few exceptions, I don’t usually do politics on this blog, at least not directly, but two of my regular reads are Walter Russell Mead and Mickey Kaus.  After reading Mead’s latest this morning, it suddenly occurred to me that if the Democratic party ever embraced a platform crafted by Mead and Kaus, they would probably achieve a supermajority in both houses of Congress and hold the presidency for a decade.

As an aside, take the time to read Mead’s The Jacksonian Tradition.  I think our non-American readers who puzzle over the choices the US makes in foreign policy will find this especially enlightening.
