A nice piece in City Journal about the key issues in the 2008 presidential election and why some candidates are penalized more than others for gaffes about those issues: ”The Globalization Election.” If you know me, you know I see globalization as a generally good thing, and at any rate an unstoppable force anyway, but I am also open to interesting perspectives and policies that show mercy to those who stand to lose in the short run. So I’m looking for candidates who can articulate that sort of stance, not with their head in the sand on issues like outsourcing and immigration, but neither unsympathetic towards groups that feel real pain in the transition.
