Following a read of Walter Russel Meads column, it is to be said that this country has the rarest opportunity to change for the better. With all of the current pessimism underfoot, it is likely that Americans will open their minds to more bold solutions than the draconian traditions of populist politics (#FAIL). There are options available but I am sure you are tired of my ranting about Herman Cain.
But you never know. It may be possible to open a new Century for this country versus becoming like France, except with worse food. Or Argentina – always trying to get back up.
