    March 24, 2008 | 3:32 pm


    The current flavor in politics is that Democrats should be extremely worried that their nomination battle is going to doom the party to defeat in the presidential election.  I’d like to make the case that all this worrying is a waste of time and energy.

    "Are you sure we won't scare him off?" my aunt asked when I called to formally ask whether my boyfriend could come to our crazy seder.
