Fact of the Day

Posted by Brian on January 25, 2008

From the letters section at Salon.com:

Do you realize that since 1980 (!), every presidential election has featured either a Bush or a Clinton on one of the tickets? And in fact, every election since 1976 has included a Bush, a Clinton or a Dole on one of the tickets.

This angle, the whole dynasty thing, has been completely absent from the SCLM’s discussions on the Hillary campaign. Clearly, such a state of affairs, with a few families dominating presidential politics over the past 20+ years,  can’t be any good for a democracy such as ours. Or do we have a rotating monarchy going now?

I wish both Bill and Hillary would simply disappear for a while.
