If, like me, you’ve been a wee bit unenthusiastic about the prospect of President Kerry, you owe it to yourself to read Tom Oliphant’s take on the guy. Oliphant is an honest, competent reporter who knows Kerry well, and he makes what seems like a solid case for optimism about how Kerry would perform in the White House.
Oliphant tosses off, as an aside, an unusually acute piece of political analysis, one that explains a lot:
In today’s political culture, progressives tend to be neurotic, conservatives fanatical.
Ain’t it the truth?
