Charles Krauthammer’s weekly column this

Charles Krauthammer’s weekly column this morning expresses a devastating assessment of the Democratic Party based only partly on Tuesday’s election results. According to Krauthammer, “The message of the 2002 election is that the Democrats remain brain-dead, and that ideas — lack of ideas — have consequences.” His concluding observations pay tribute to President Bush, and suggest that the American people have taken his measure. The column is “The Uses of Political Courage.”
I don’t understand where on the political spectrum Michal Lind is nowadays, but he is a very smart guy, with a Deacon-like knowledge of American history. The Financial Times carries his evaluation of Tuesday’s election results, and it is worth reading. With thanks to our friends at RealClearPolitics for bringing it to our attention, the column is “The Emerging Democratic Minority.”
