Dick Morris on algore

Once again Dick Morris proves himself one of the most astute political analysts in the country.

Here’s my favorite quote:

The way to get a Democrat to destroy his own chances of winning is to get his liberal constituency hot and angry and lead it to demand that its representatives stand up and be counted for a liberal, unpopular position. It was just such a quandary that led Mike Dukakis into his famous opposition to the death penalty in the 1988 election and that enticed Hillary ever leftward on health care in 1994.
