  •  It's a metaphor (4+ / 0-)

    Of course the whole world isn't watching the CT primary; that goes without saying - they weren't watching in Chicago in '68, either.

    But this election does have worldwide import, becuase it weighs on every single circumstance you detailed in your comment. Every single one.

    I appreciate your point.

      might be more accuarate, but, okay, glad you appreciate my point.

      It's the glaring omissions amidst all the Lamont focus (glad to see Lieberman go, if he does, dont get me wrong) that I think are troublesome. Perhaps some of the inflated hopes/hyperbole that Lamont will be the first domino for massive change may be compensating for all that is not addressed and, frustratingly, not pushed toward change.

      Should a liberal Dem blog be driven into "safe zones" by a tame party, or should it drive a tame party to break out?

        As far as this particular election goes, I fall to the "optimistic" side of center, with respect to its potential effect on the entire U.S. body politic.

    •  But Ned supports Israels right to bomb (0+ / 0-)

      too, so while you are right this election impacts worldwide that does not imply change in policy towards Israeli aggression.It impacts the world in that there is no change. This may not be what you want to hear, but living in the world outside of the US you hear plenty of people who are interested in US elections and want to see the replacement of those who support our client states aggression.
