Year of the turnip 

I'm getting a chuckle out of all the earnest journalists covering the Republican primaries, talking about McCain vs Romney and Guiliani vs. Thompson, as though any of them mattered in the least.
The American electorate is so angry at the Republicans they would vote for a turnip if it was a Democrat.
Luckily, the Democratic nominee will be Obama or Clinton or Edwards, any one of whom will make a fine president.
As Avedon Carol says:
America doesn't really need Obama to bring us together, because we already are together with just about anyone who isn't a movement conservative/Republican. We want liberal programs and we don't want crazy neocon wars or stupid privatized "services" and destructive monetarist trade/economic policies. There's a minority that will hate Obama just for being a Democrat, but there's no pleasing them. Everyone else is sick of the Republicans. Messrs. Broder and Sullivan may not get this, but pretty much everyone else does.
