Clinton's New Covenant? Thanks, But No Thanks
In "The crux for Clinton: Following through" (News: Commentary & Analysis, Feb. 6), you seem to think Clinton's New Covenant is a reasonable vision of government. You use a quote from Clinton's State of the Union speech: "We should rely on government as a partner to help us do more for ourselves." As a middle-class American who voted for the GOP last November, I see nothing reasonable in that quote.
