Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I did not figure out the nature and extent of the political problem in the USA until 2008-'09, so I am as guilty as any of the electorate in this regard. With very few exceptions the USA has not had any real statesmen in public office since at least 1968. Mostly what we have had are power brokers. That has been a national disaster.
