Agree or disagree, the rage that Christopher Caldwell identifies isn’t going away.
In just a few short days, what was shaping up to be a sad and pathetic end to Biden’s career turned into a richly ironic triumph. The joke’s on us.
If Sanders is the nominee and loses to Trump in November, it won’t be because of something he said about Fidel Castro 30 years ago. It will be because, like George McGovern, his time had not yet come.
None of these candidates deserves to be president, and the way things are looking none of them is likely to be burdened with the task. People who know how to do nothing but apologize for America, and even for their own existence, have no business being in the White House.
