Peggy Noonan’s Plea
Posted by Mike on December 29, 2007
Every four years, Peggy Noonan implores the parties holding Presidential primaries to simply nominate a normal person. Her quadrennial plea is often amusing, and usually close to right. Like most normal informed Americans, Noonan prefers a Republican President, but she does have some kind words about some Democrats with whom she disagrees.
I don’t agree with all of Peggy’s opinions in this year’s plea, but I do appreciate her take on John Edwards and She Who Must Not Be Named. It’s one thing to be wrong on the issues as all of this year’s Democrats are, but it is quite another to couple a misguided worldview with loathsome personal qualities. On the Democrat side, those personal qualities might be an asset though. We’ll know soon.
