THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

I always thought that Bill Bradley might be that rare Democrat that, depending upon who he was running against, I might actually vote for.

Turns out that he is as smart as advertised. I missed it Wednesday, but he wrote a terrific op-ed for the NY Times where he assesses the current state of the Democrats and tells them why they still don't get it. A sample:

(W)e are still hypnotized by Jack Kennedy, and the promise of a charismatic leader who can change America by the strength and style of his personality. The trouble is that every four years the party splits and rallies around several different individuals at once. Opponents in the primaries then exaggerate their differences and leave the public confused about what Democrats believe.

No shit.
