    First, on economic issues the modern Democratic party is what we would once have considered “centrist”, or even center-right. Obama’s Heritage-Foundation-inspired health care plan is to the right of Richard Nixon’s. Nobody with political influence is suggesting a return to pre-Reagan tax rates on the wealthy.
    Krugman runs the risk of being turned into a progressive pariah talking like that.  Anyone else remember how before re-e-lec-tion time any talk of Obama being center-right (or like an old fashioned moderate Republican) would draws howls of protest and indignation?  I do since I was the target of such protests.

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell
