We have a viable candidate in the Democratic Primary. No, it's not Hillary Clinton. If you think I'm joking, look how the Clintons treat their friends here. As a Democratic institution, the Clintons are toast. Their time has come and gone in a big way.
Perhaps the most painful part of the "Clinton Experience" for me has been how wrong I was and how right many of my right wing friends were about the Clintons.
One day at a time, we awaken to a choice to believe in the core principles that make our personal histories appear sensible in our own "rearview mirrors", or we continue to confuse ourselves with the distractions and misinterpretations of others. As Soren Kierkegaard once mused, "life is understood upon reflection, but must be lived looking forward." Or words to that effect.
The Clintons, then as now, continue to confuse issues and obfuscate, or minimize, important facts. Not unlike their friends in the neo-conservative wing of the rising proto-fascist party. Their ultimate impact is the confusion of history. Without a sensible history to reflect on, time-honored principles of behavior appear dubious and their effects ambiguous.
Some of you might think that I might reference some set of time-honored spiritual principles that involve the interference of a third party placed between ourselves and our Creator – whomever that may one day be revealed to be. No, that is not my intention.
