Contrasts :


JohnRobb has a fascinating comment : I am not sure why most people were surprised by Bush's inaugural speech. It contains the essence of what swept the Republicans to power, and what will keep them there. What is it? It is the last gasp of the idea of a "nation" -- a people with a common beliefs, origin, and history. Bush merely pumped the idea that American nationalism was exceptional.
