Hindrocket: Little Difference Between Dems and Reps?
Here's an extraordinary post
from John Hinderaker.So I don't think it is either surprising or, from a political standpoint, unwise for the Democrats to turn to an antiwar figure like Feingold, or whoever else may emerge between now and the summer of 2008. And, while I would far prefer a Republican administration, or, failing that, a more moderate Democratic one, I think it is easy to overstate the practical consequences for our foreign policy should an antiwar candidate be elected.
It will be interesting to see how the Lefty blogs, who routinely demonize Power Line, react to this post. I suspect there will be three main currents:
1. Hinderaker underestimates how different Feingold would be.
2. He's waving the white flag and acknowledging that the Democrats will cruise to victory.
3. He's still a Nazi, for various other reasons.
As for me, I couldn't disagree with him more. Feingold will be accommodationist towards the terrorists, which will just embolden them, much as McGovern's election in 1972 would have emboldened the Communists.
If Feingold looks likely to get the nomination, this blog will endorse Senator John McCain for the Republican nomination, because I don't want to take a chance of losing to the idiot left. And anyway, I still say Hillary's the frontrunner; we often forget that Howard Dean looked unstoppable right up to the moment that the adults in the Democrats (who are most decidedly not the Lefty blogs) had to make a decision. Joe Lieberman, for all the crowing about his defeat, nearly came back and took the nomination away from Ned Lamont.
