Parag Khanna in the NYTimes Magazine, writing about the end of American Hegemony|
This article articulates one of the things I've been ranting to people about for the last year or so -- the fact that America is done as a world power. Part of the reason for this comprise geopolitical trends that the US has no control over. A big part of it, though, is George Bush's policies both domestic and foreign, which are tone-deaf and brain-dead. I won't take the time to rant on Bush's failings (again) but I will repeat myself (and others): worst president ever.
Surprisingly there was a very well-written column about the Clinton(s) campaign in the Daily Iowan, that summarizes quite well all my objections to Hillary Clinton.
