History rhyming

History doesn’t repeat itself, but it sometimes rhymes. That’s what Mark Twain said.

History has rhymed a bit since 2000, says Lee Siegel of The New Republic (that Clintonian-Zionist-publication). He shows how much alike JFK and GWB are. Dear reader, I said the same thing two months before Siegel. If Bush is like Kennedy, then surely Gore is like Nixon. Well almost, of course Gore will not do a Watergate.

And one hopes that he will be able to leave Iraq, though Siegel doesn’t think so. If Gore were to prove Siegel wrong, he would need his own Kissinger. Who will be Gore’s Kissinger?
