The Democratic Mindset
Matt hates the unity ticket idea:
Then there's this -- "[Clinton] would also bring some national security street cred to the ticket, which is an Obama vulnerability that I suspect is being underappreciated at the moment." This reflects, I believe, an incredibly damaging mindset that's been crippling the Democratic Party for years and the prospect of excising this mindset is the single most appealing thing about the prospect of Obama being the nominee. Clinton's "street cred" on national security consists, of course, of being massively wrong on the most important national security issue of her career. Paradoxically, a lot of folks find her massive wrongness on this hugely important issue reassuring...
Well, that wasn't part of my argument at least.
