Analyzing The D Race

Robert Reich has a thoughtful analysis of the Democratic party Presidential nomination race. I've been careful to note what Uncle Robert says ever since I read his Work Of Nations almost a decade ago.

For so long now, everyone has assumed that recapturing the presidency depends on who triumphs in the battle between liberals and moderates within the party. Such thinking, though, is inherently flawed.
