Hubris and 'The Enemy Within'

*
Come November who are we going to blame? This time, Ralph Nader and the Supreme Court will not be the ones.

What is happening between the Democratic front runners is ugly and harmful for the party. A few months back retaking of the White House looked like an almost sure thing. It is becoming less and less so. While HC and Obama are engaged in destroying themselves and the chances of winning the presidency, John McCain is taking full advantage of it and moving ahead. Hear him chortle?

Let's face it. The chances of another Republican president, who has recast himself as a Bush clone, are very real. McCain might not have the support needed in Congress to continue the divisive, reactionary policies of G.W. Bush. That, however, is small consolation for us who have been waiting for the Bush presidency -- a dark chapter in our history -- to end.

Researching the phrase "the enemy within", I came across items about the late cartoonist Walt Kelly, creator of Pogo. Interesting.
