Now if you want to take the position that the present crop of Democrats have brought the worst aspects of non-classic liberalism to the fore, I think we, you and I anyway, might find more agreement than disagreement on that.
Taken to the reflexive, the same might be, and can probably be, said for classic conservatism and the last crop of Republicans. The new crop, the ones just voted into office, I think it's a bit too early to say, just yet. They've not yet established themselves, nor been in office long enough to have demonstrated a track record in their new offices. I guess we'll see as time goes on and this new congress develops.
