Commentary of the Day

Diane, on Peter Wehner:

Here’s a purely academic question: Assuming America will need to sow its “redistributive” oats before it can come back to its senses, which is the lesser evil?

1. Obama wins in 2008 and America grows up by 2010.
2. McCain wins in 2008 and the anti-capitalists come back with a vengeance in 2012.
3. (assuming we had a time machine) America elects Kerry in 2004 and wises up by 2008.

What I’m getting at here is that for the last three elections we have seen a 50-50 split in this country between Red and Blue. The pendulum is bound to swing to the Blue at some point or another. Is it better for this adjustment to take place sooner or later?
