america calling desmond tutu

Mark Kleiman over at The Reality-Based Community: Truth and Reconciliation writes:
If a Democrat gets elected next year, he or she is going to have a
terrible hand to play. The economy is likely to be in a slowdown, with
the bad-housing-debt problem still looming. The foreign policy
situation certainly isn't going to get any better. And worst of all,

I've thought about this for a while - it seems entirely ludicrous that any sane individual would wish to take on the US presidency at this time, for the reasons the article outlines. I only hope Kleiman's punchline pans out. I wonder if the US would even be capable of handling anything like the TRC when people are so polarized about the morons in power. It would be like India having a TRC to deal with the excesses of politicians - not bloody likely.
