Obama’s Win: A Death-Knell For 1960s Cultural Politics?
There’s a tidy symmetry in the fact that Obama defeated, in succession, both the Clinton machine and the Rove-Atwater brand of politics that Republicans have honed for so long.
In so doing, Obama defeated not one, but both of the leading practitioners of that 1960s-rooted cultural politics. More to the point, he did this by quite literally running against politics as both those groups practiced it.
My only concern: How will our nation survive without its electoral system being used to process baby boomers’ psychological issues?
