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.

This piece about why Sanders isn't resonating with black voters seems to miss a central truth.  Sanders is running on policies.  But for most voters, personality matters a great deal.  And Sanders is a prickly old grouch.

If you're a motivated, plugged in economic leftist, you are reading his policy proposals and gushing.

But the actual guy?

I don't think he will wear well in the debates.
