Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Interesting Read,0,2682953.story

I've been very impressed with Malloy as a governor.  He's been intelligent, balanced and forceful when he needs to be.  Of course, he has super-majorities in the legislature, but he's done well.

He also has the charisma of a doorknob, which limits his upside beyond Hartford.

But this is an interesting take about what happens when a smart, calculating politician comes face to face with something that exceeds the moral calculus of politics.
