Twilight Of The Age Of Reagan

Gary Hart gets the big picture right over at Huffington:

The age of Roosevelt was replaced by the age of Reagan which itself is
coming to an end. The age of Reagan was relieved only briefly by a rare period
of peace and prosperity in the 1990s. The brief Clinton era pursued "centrism"
at the cost of blurring the fundamental principles of the 20th century
Democratic party -- a sense of national community (Roosevelt), citizen duty
(Kennedy), and equality and justice for all (Johnson). Return to the age of
Reagan, under the current administration, destroyed the security alliances
established by Truman.

But who will return us to the values of the Age Of Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Johnson? Mrs. Clinton? No. Obama? Maybe. Any Republican currently running for president? No.
