THE MORNING AFTER
You have to cut me some slack. Starting with 1948, when I first got interested in politics, this is my eighteenth presidential contest. Even if I live to be a hundred, gott sei dank, I will only see four more. So you must allow me to qvell a little about Bernie. I know his socialism has more in common with The New Deal than with the Communist Manifesto, and I am well aware that it is only New Hampshire, but this is as close as I am liable to get to the Promised Land. Sixty percent on a platform of "Democratic Socialism!" On to that hotbed of radicalism, Nevada.
