Philadelphia Pending Approval
Applause for Krugman’s position from this reader. I have long felt that Bernie is long on slogans that are rich in much-needed idealism but short on the specific policy proposals needed to achieve them. Politics, as Kennedy said, is the art of the possible. Change requires support and change requires just as much people-sense as it does passion and vision. I have long felt that Bernie is weak in the people-sense area of national politics. He seems to be something of a loner and a touch self-righteous. That doesn’t garner the support needed to achieve real and important change in a culture dominated by the buck.
