Uh-oh, there’s that “p” word again. Unfortunately, Mr. Lord, there seems to be little connection between anyone in politics today and Henry Wallace. Wallace was an idealistic anti-fascist and populist whose views bear little resemblance to those of Howard Dean, John Kerry, John Edwards, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, Mark Warner, Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. These days, naive idealists get nowhere in politics. Today’s liberals may still like the idea of less war, famine, pestilence and oppression, but they’ve learned that being nice to everyone doesn’t always work. They’ve also learned that business interests masquerading as disseminators of democracy are equally doomed to failure. They know that this country has finite resources and an uncertain future.p>To the best of my knowledge, the Dixie Chicks are just regular people who happen to have a podium and are willing to risk their careers by voicing their opinions. How surprising is it that someone brought up in the Bible Belt might think that war is a bad thing? Perhaps Mr. Lord has been studying the wrong book. br> — Paul Dorell br> Highland Park, Illinois /p> p> The Houston Chronicle

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
