Hello darkness my old friend....
It could be that Ms. Warren's argument is too religious, even with that one bare mention of a Sunday school lesson explicitly stated. We are still surprised that the religious can be interested in others. Maybe that's because politics is only about power, not about morality. Concern for others is the foundation of morality. How to wield power, is the foundation of politics. Politics can be shaped toward moral ends, but most of us aren't really interested in that; we are interested in what's in it for us, as Tom Junod illustrates in that linked post. Mr. Junod makes two fatal mistakes there: 1) he assumes religion, especially orthodox varieties, are always about exclusion; and 2) he assumes that politics is about what is right, rather than about power. Elizabeth Warren came closer than anyone at the DNC to talking about what is right; Bill Clinton talked about power.
And Bill Clinton is who everybody is talking about this morning.
Charlie Pierce said Elizabeth Warren finally became a politician last night. Ms. Warren is not a completely religious figure, but I hope Mr. Pierce is not completely right.
