Everything New is Old
Many folks on the right and more than a few on the left believe the Democratic Party is headed to disaster, being dragged to doom by the MoveOn / Dean-Gore / Bushysteria / anti-war crowd. It wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened for them.
It just goes to show how recurrent human events can be. Note that back then, the Democrats stayed out of power for more than 25 years, briefly seized power only to see the county fall into a bad recession, then were back out of power for another couple of decades.
Something to think about.
