3. Right of Nixon might not be so bad these days. Right of Reagan, however,
is very troubling.

Then again, I like Democratic politicians who are actually Democrats in principles, as well is in name.

Too bad most of them exist only in history books anymore.

4. Well, Simpson and Bowles still love it. But some members of the Commission voted against it.
Ryan, for one.
