World's clumsiest socialist

In his column on rising economic inequality, commentator Thomas F. Schaller asks "Is Obama the world's worst socialist?" (Sept. 3). My answer is, he may not be the worst ,but he may be the clumsiest.

    Nowhere to go but up for Southern Democrats

    There have been five federal elections — three midterms and two presidential cycles — since the October 2006 publication of my book, "Whistling Past Dixie."
