  •  Your first big proof (none)
    if you needed it, that "triangulation" was really not such a good idea after all.

    Massacre is not a family value.

    •  Necessity is the mother of strategy (none)
      Triangulation was not a political commitment for Clinton, it was a strategy for getting at least a part of his agenda through.  With healthcare, the approach seemed to be the most practical way forward, given the hostility at that point to universal healthcare (did you know it is socialized medicine)?  It turned out not to be practical.  It did not work in this but it certainly bought time in other areas.

      Now, the American people are at yet another, deeper, and different healthcare crisis.  Maybe those drunk on the fear of socialized medicine have finally hit bottom and are ready for their 12 step program.  Step 1: say after me, I support universal healthcare....
