The American Aristocracy

The United States is, rather shamelessly, renouncing whatever claim it might have had to status as a democracy. Politics is becoming more and more a family affair. Last week we had Rand Paul enjoying his 15 minutes. Here we have "P" Bush planning a move for public office in Texas. And here we have yet another young Kennedy running (like "P") for . . .  whatever might happen to come open. No experience needed. No demonstrated aptitude or ability. No commitment to politics beyond keeping the family name in play. Where is Chelsea Clinton?
