Bob Herbert

Indeed, sir. Indeed.

I especially like how he compares the way liberals treat the Presidents who made great strides for the poor and working classes versus the way conservatives treat their heroes. My only quibble is that in the case of Lyndon Johnson, praise for his social policies has to be tempered by his ruinous Vietnam policy. That's what keeps him from being a top-five president and recognized as greater than Kennedy.

But Herbert is right. I'm a liberal and I'm damn proud of it.
