“The second, opposite, danger is that, instead of pandering to culturally conservative voters, Democrats–particularly upscale liberal Democrats–will revile them. This week’s devastating loss may produce a spasm of liberal anti-Americanism akin to the conservative anti-Americanism that followed the failure to impeach Bill Clinton. Little could be worse for the Democratic Party than a surge of cultural elitism, something that has hurt it immeasurably over the years. It must be resisted ferociously.”
-—Peter Beinart, “What Went Wrong?,” on the 2004 election, The New Republic, Nov. 15, 2004.
