Over at The New Republic, Nate Cohn looks at the ways the culture warrior model works for Obama in this election. I am not sure Cohn is right, but I fear he is, and that the long term conseqeunces for the Democratic Party are grim indeed. I have said it before and will say it again: The historic vocation of the Democratic Party is to fight for the interests of the working class. If it abandons that vocation to become a policy defined around preferences in the culture wars, I, for one, will no longer be interested in the Democratic Party.
