Governing re-alingment

Ronald Brownstein has a terrific piecie in the Atlantic Monthly headlined "Repudiating Bush" ... the title is a bit misleading, however; the piece is really about the cyclical nature of presidential re-alignments, and how we may be looking at a new epoch in governing philosophy.

In short, the theory goes like this:  Roosevelt ushered forty-eight years of activist government, which was temporarily punctuated by Eisenhower and Nixon (both big government Republicans), but predominated by the New Deal and Great Society; Reagan marked twenty-eight years of limited government, which was punctuated by Clinton for eight years (he of the 'era of big government is over' fame), but essentially rejected Keynsian economics; and now Obama is closing the loop on the New Deal and putting us on a glide path to European-style socialism. 

It's too soon to tell if this is a philosophical re-alingment, though it certainly looks that way.  A topic I will certanly will investigate more.

Glide path? More like strapped us onto a rocket engine! It's like we can't get there fast enough.

I believe it to be an attempt at a philosophical re-alignment. The question now before us is whether or not the American people ultimately accept socialism/equality in exchange for capitalism/freedom.
