Welcome Instapundit Readers!!! While you’re here, take time to browse around the website that has been called “the most reliably conservative gay blog on the Internet.”
Yesterday, Glenn Reynolds linked an interesting post where Stephen Bainbridge noted the “guilty pleasure” one liberal law professor felt in voting for Ms. Hillary. What struck me was that she is now experiencing what many conservative academics have experienced, writing “I have been quite surprised to learn how ‘silenced’ I feel by my many colleagues who are enthusiastically supporting Obama.”
She has found the “being inside the experience of a ‘minority view’ in my own institutional political culture is instructive.” Let’s hope this makes her more tolerant of conservative ideas — and individuals.
What struck me about Professor Bainbridge’s piece was not merely this woman’s reflection on being a minority on a college campus, but something he said about the Clinton experience. He really got at the reason many of us (even those on the left) don’t want to see that couple back in the White House:
Finally, although I know most Democrats seem to look back on the Bill Clinton era with fondness, I suspect that most—in their heart of hearts—don’t miss the slease, vindictiveness, political opportunism, and general ickiness of the Clinton White House.
