Some primary viewpoints

I want to give Rosa Brooks a hug. She is my hero. This is one of the best columns I've seen on the Clintons' recklessly selfish and destructive campaign of personal aggrandizement.

Meanwhile, Paul Krugman has completed his transformation from former brilliant voice of progressive opinion to shameless shill for the Clintons for Presidents Forever Campaign. [Memo to Paul: She's not going to win, and you've thrown away your reputation in pursuit of a government appointment that's never going to come -- unless you build a time machine and take yourself back to the ever-glorious and golden '90s.] It's pretty sad to see how Krugman has gone from such great heights to becoming such a straight-out dickhead. Remember this line Paul? "We should also ask why anyone who didn't raise questions about the war - or, at any rate, anyone who acted as a cheerleader for this march of folly - should be taken seriously when he or she talks about matters of national security."

I guess you're not asking those questions anymore, huh? That's okay. You're right: let's get behind the candidate with all that foreign policy experience (Sinbad! Snipers! Eighth-graders!) who's threatening to "totally obliterate" nations.

Obamatards! Give up all hope and embrace the logic of Krugman: bow down before Hillary Clinton, or she will totally obliterate you.

i think you think it's one of the best columns you've read b/c it reads almost exactly like a RC blog post.

I'm totally anti-conventional wisdom on this one. I think the more this thing drags out, the better it is for Obama's eventual (and inevitable) gen election candidacy. Does anyone remember whether McCain is even still alive?

Fear sowers live on both sides.
But the reasoning is inevitably different.
Fear that hope shall be quashed, or fear for the sake of political end game.
Make no mistake, one is more tenable,
but fear resides in all.
