Indiana Primary – 40 Years after Kennedy

6 05 2008

This is not only a really fine bit of writing but it’s also a lesson in history.

The talking heads of the TV babblerati certified it to be true — this is the first time in 40 years the Democratic primary election in Indiana has been important. That would be 1968, and Robert Kennedy had just jumped into the race for the Democratic nomination after Lyndon Johnson had just bowed out.

I know. I was alive. And I was there — in Indiana, the weekend before the primary election.

Read the rest of it. It’s amazingly good.
