Centrism Can Never Be Failed

Young people probably think one termer Jimmy Carter and failed candidate Mike Dukakis failed because they were TOO LIBERAL, and that Bill Clinton's woes (1994 midterm blowout) were for the same reason.

Oldheads know that all of them were, actually, the favored candidate of "centrists" who, as they always do, start blaming everybody else when they don't get their expected successes.

A 1998 1988 NYT editorial about Dukakis was titled, "Virtuoso of the Center," in case your memory is faulty, too!
