Bill Bennett on his old party
Bill Bennett writes today at NRO on the Democrat Party, to which he belonged until 1986. In this excellent piece, Bennett echoes a theme which Peggy Noonan wrote on last Friday: the exclusive focus on politics, in this case by the contemporary Democrat Party. Bennett writes, "Politics was not only all-consuming for them [the Party and its constituency], and the political was not just the same as the personal — politics had revealed itself for what it truly had become for the Democratic party: final."
Very true. And very sad.
There is much more to life than politics. Too bad that so many of today's Democrats and their current leadership are blind to it all.
