In any case, Sullivan is right that Obama is much more in touch with the mainstream of modern British political and social thought than is Romney. What he needs to reflect on is whether or not that is a good thingMy wife used a Britishism to reflect her view—rubbish.
My view is more (and please don't mention to her my use of the term) nuanced. There is a reason the MSM has given us the color "Red" for the last few election cycles. Aside from the fact that historians traditionally use red on maps to depict the bad guys is the fact that red is the color of revolution—and the Republicans are those who want change, who are the revolutionaries. President Obama and his Democratic Party friends are the stand-patters.♠
