  •  I think I prefer early Aaron Sorkin to (11+ / 0-)

    the later versions: there comes a time when a writer falls too much in love with his or her own prose and it starts to show. I often think that happened to Sorkin, or at least, it's what happened to me, the once and future Sorkin fan.

    Still that, "yes, I'm a card carrying member of the ACLU, Bob", but the real question is, "why aren't you?"  speech from An American President is that moment which so many of us on the left have been waiting for a leader of the Democratic Party to say for years upon years upon years.

    I think that's why I like it so much, it's the "do-over" we all wish every one of them had.  Nostalgia even.

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
