Good reading matter

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.
