The Politics of Sameness

Monday, December 31st, 2007

The NYT asks an easy question:

What if at the end of Thursday, the three leading Democrats — John Edwards, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Senator Barack Obama — are separated by a percentage point, or even less, leaving no one with the clear right of delivering a victory speech, or the burden of conceding? A number of polls going into the finals days that of have suggested that after all of this, the Democratic caucus on Thursday night will end up more or less as a tie.

And the answer–there really is no difference between them–doesn’t matter.

No innovation for real choice.
