{Empty title} | The Nation

Laura Flanders has way too much confidence in the DNC and the American people. The DNC is once again backing two unelectable candidates. Worthy as they may very well be, neither Hillary or Barack Obama will sway what is still a largely conservative, narrow-minded and misinformed nation of voters. The tragic and frightening truth is that much of the nation has learned nothing from eight years of division, corruption, fearmongering and war. Just look at the rise of John McCain. All a candidate has to do is to press the "national security" button and be wrapped in a flag and America will follow. The only candidate who would give McCain a run for his money would be Edwards--but the DNC will never support him fully.
