When I point out to my conservative friends that in terms of federal spending and exploding deficits, Reagan’s limited government rhetoric didn”t always match reality, they are offended that I would dare question the Republican messiah. Likewise, conservatives can take solace in the fact that the right-wing nightmares and left-wing dreams induced by the new Democratic messiah won”t amount to much either. As of this writing, Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers haven”t been considered for any cabinet positions, but former Clinton officials John Podesta, Carol Browner and William Daley have. In fact, there isn”t much to indicate that the second black president will govern much different from the first.
