Richardson’s decision was not a desertion of The Clintons. It was his acknowledgment that they were burning bridges to the future while hanging on the muddied past.
The Torch is being passed whether The Clintons like it or not. The Centralists seem to be frightened to death that they can’t control it any longer. This makes me question big time what it is precisely that The Clintons are trying to protect?
The GOP’s globalization/privatization pyramid scheme has been way too closely associated with many of our Democratic politicians. I’ve never understood why so many Dems capitulated so easily.
"You are not your bank account. You are not the clothes you wear. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your bowel cancer. You are not your grande latte. You are not the car you drive. You are not your fucking khakis… I say, let me never be complete. I say, may I never be content. I say, deliver me from Swedish furniture. I say, deliver me from clever art. I say, deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth… I say, evolve, and let the chips fall where they may." ~Chuck Palahniuk
