The name on the door changes, but it's the same damn thing. Anybody who
makes it to the top layer of power can only get there by making so many
compromises that the sum of their vectors is almost dead-on status quo.

I don't expect Dubya to take real steps toward a smaller government
and fewer foreign adventures than I expected Clinton to take real
steps toward curtailing corporate encroachments on people's liberties.
Pro-government government or slightly less openly pro-government
government is still government that seeks to perpetuati itself.
