This is what the Republican primary voters are thinking about electing. He rules out repealing Obamacare. Stands by his cap-and-trade vote. Says his opponent is delusional for saying his team is…doing what you can watch. He is, the more one looks, the ultimate in a disheartening public servant.
I suppose that is to say, in short, that he is the embodiment of the establishment pol.
But you see (the argument goes), he’s “electable”. To what end?
Further, maybe that’s what needs to change.
