Last election post

Don’t tell me it was close. Don’t blame it on Hurricane Sandy or Gov. Chris Christie. When eco­nom­ic conditions are as bad as they were in 2012 and the incumbent wins anyway, that’s not “close.” That’s the challenger party throwing away a sure thing..nostalgia for a misremembered past is no basis for governing a diverse and advancing nation...A century [ago], a great British conservative, the Marquess of Salisbury, warned, “The commonest error in politics is sticking to the carcass of dead policies.”
