Henry Wallace with a website

Barry Casselman devotes a devastating column to Ned Lamont: “Henry Wallace with a website.” Casselman finds Lamont to be a modern analogue of Wallace, the Communist dupe who served as vice president of the United States during Franklin Roosevelt’s third term. (Peter Beinart, on the other hand, would find Casselman guilty of falling for “The Ned scare.”) Reading Cassdlman’s column, I wonder what would have happened had Roosevelt not lived long enough to replace Wallace with Harry Truman as his running mate in 1944. Or whether the fact that he did doesn’t somehow reflect the special regard in which Providence holds the United States.
