Obama No Longer Clinton 1992 Redux?
But what is really interesting is Edsall's focus on the mandate Clinton won in 1992:
Clinton not only overestimated the magnitude of his election victory but initially proceeded to govern as if cultural and social post-sixties liberalism had won, when in fact a moderated centrism had won.
Of course, that seemed to be what was possible in 1992 - a win for moderated Democratic centrism. In 2008, we can seek more for the mandate. We must. More . . .
