Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)
...My general view is that Paul is far too imperfect a vessel to allow me to say anything approbative about him. I do think someone else needs to question the American imperium within the context of a serious presidential candidacy, the sooner the better. Again, either there needs to be serious reform within the Democratic Party, or there needs to be a third party...
Truer words hard to come by these, without that assent meaning I'd agree with your answers to the questioning. I suspect I wouldn't. But here's a thought, as usual a slight one: with Obama in a second term and without the pressure of running again, maybe he can be bolder in some things. Progressives, I don't think, can ever do better than Obama, once the mug's game of politics enters into the reckoning of what's realistically politically possible. (At least one progressive friend of mine tends to agree with this.)
