History teaches us only that Europe’s map will be redrawn — again — as a result of the euro’s collapse. The most important question, then, is who will be the cartographer?
Here the crystal ball goes dark. It is obvious that whatever nation could wield a large enough economic sword could be Europe’s master, but the price of such a sword is too high. It is just as obvious, and just as wrong, to say that a potential conqueror from the east would find Europe an easy target. But America — on cultural grounds if nothing else — would likely bar that conquest if we were still able.

If only the Greeks — or at least Greek women - made a study of their own culture. Aristophanes had a prescription for what ails Greece and the rest of the Eurozone, though it’s probably too late for even that medicine to work. The Lysistrata remedy might have worked a decade or two ago. Now there is nothing that can prevent economic Darwinism from working its evolution on Europe.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
