The Dynasty Argument

In today's NYT, Nicholas Kristof posits the same argument that we heard whispered in DC--that electing Hillary Clinton will mean that the same two families will have owned the White House for close to 30 years.

It's a chilling argument, one that aims right at the heart of our small-r republican ethos. But I find it peculiar that the same people who would have followed Bobby (or in smaller numbers, Ted) Kennedy to the ends of the earth are raising it now.
