Sally Quinn endorses Hillary Clinton for VP in 2012
No, really. Quinn concludes:
Take it seriously.
It's a little late. I don't think the legacy parties can salvaged, much as I came to admire Hillary's grit during the 2008 primaries (modulo her support for the empire, which is a wash, since all of Versailles supports the empire). As always, I can be persuaded with policy detail, but I don't think Versailles, in its current configuration, can produce the kind of policy that would prevent collapse, as Jared Diamond understood the term.
Such policies would be, at a minimum level of sanity: (1) Jobs Guarantee, (2) Single Payer, (3) breakup of TBTF banks and criminal charges for accounting control fraud, (4) end our several wars, (5) shrink the military drastically, and (6) restore Constitutional Government.* Those policies would prevent collapse, but nobody serious in Versailles believes that, because it is not in their interest to do so. That means the Ds won't save us, so it's foolish to invest time with them. We have to save ourselves.
NOTE * Plus appropriate solutions on climate change. I'm not clued in enough to that discourse to make a recommendation, although I think the starting point is Socolow.
NOTE Via Violet. Oddly, or not, none of the access bloggers seemed to have picked this one up.
