UPDATE to the post below: I’m so old that I can remember when The New Republic was a terrific magazine, not only dependably factual in its heavily reasoned arguments (98.73 per cent of which I disagreed with) but also pointedly civilised. The new TNR isn’t like the old TNR in an awful lot of ways, but here is an Obama supporter arguing that Clinton should just leave the race so that Obama can have a clear shot at McCain. It is entitled:
Go Already! Hillary Clinton, fratricidal maniac.
I hope that almost everyone in the world can agree this says much more about the writer than about Clinton, or, of course, Obama, who can’t be responsible for every action of every supporter.
