The ultimate logic of the present moment

If front-runner Hillary Clinton wins the 2008 election and is re-elected, then two families will rule America for 28 straight years. The next step in this grand historical evolution seems obvious.

Thinking along similar lines, Norm Ornstein writes today:

"Americans all have to consider the implications now of a worst case scenario-- the problems of scandal and polarization result in a meltdown of the W. Administration and a collapse of governance in Washington. No Doubt some hard core partisans and ideologues would exult. But with the domestic and foreign policy challenges the country faces, it would be a disaster for all of us.

"We are in the same boat, and if it is rudderless, we all sink. So how can we deal with the consequences if that worst case scenario occurs? Here is one simple three steop roadmap:

"1. Vice President Cheney resigns-- and President Bush replaces him not with Condoleezza Rice, as the rumors in Washington speculate, but with his father, George H.W. Bush.

"2. President Bush resigns, allowing his father to move up to the presidency.

"3. Bush 41/44 chooses his best buddy and surrogate son Bill Clinton (42, that is) to be Vice President. Talk about a fusion White House. Talk about bringing us together. Talk about compassionate triangulation.

C'mon, Norm, you can do better. Why stop there? How about ...

4. Jeb Bush's politically ambitious son George P. Bush gets his marriage to that blonde annulled on the grounds of non-dynasticism and marries Chelsea Clinton.

5. George P. and Chelsea succeed to the White House as co-Presidents in the mode of England's King William and Queen Mary (fulfilling her mother's deepest wish).

6. Chelsea gives birth to a son and daughter, who, in the fullness of time, follow their parents on the throne.

7. The royal siblings marry and produce a son and a daughter.

8. Repeat forever... or at least until inbreeding depression reduces the co-Presidents to drooling cretins and the Secret Service auctions off the Presidency to the highest bidder.

Hey, it worked for the ancient Egyptians.

A reader updated Richmond's speech concluding Shakespeare's Richard III about the marriage to end the War of the Roses:

We will unite the blue rose and the red:
Smile heaven upon this fair conjunction,
That long have frown'd upon their enmity!
What extremist hears me, and says not amen?
America hath long been mad, and scarr'd herself;
The doctor blindly spinned his client's gaffe,
The consultant plotteth revenge in ye War Room
The leader useth his aide as a cigar
All this divided Red and Blue
Divided in their dire division,

O, now, let George P and Chelsea
The true succeeders of each royal house,
By God's fair ordinance conjoin together!
And let their heirs, God, if thy will be so.
Enrich the time to come with smooth-faced peace,
With smiling plenty and fair prosperous days!
Abate the edge of racists, gracious Lord,
That would demand both parties make borders secure,
And make America less inclusive
Let them not live to taste this land's increase
That would with insensitivity wound this fair land's peace!
Now civil wounds are stopp'd, peace lives again:
That she may long live here, God say amen!
