Today's Republicans Look Like Democrats in 1988

Jeff Greenfield: "You're looking at a political party that has lost the popular vote in five of the past six elections; whose one winning presidential candidate achieved the White House thanks to a fluke; and whose prospects for the future seem doomed by demography and geography."

"No, it's not today's Republican Party you're looking at--it's the Democratic Party after the 1988 elections. And the past (nearly) quarter-century is an object lesson in the peril of long-term assumptions about the nature and direction of our political path."
