The author of this letter has observed close to 20 national elections in his lifetime, and cannot recall one in which one party catered to class envy, and in general played class politics, as crassly as the Democratic Party in its current campaign for the presidency.
While the men shed neckties and affect rolled-up sleeves, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s lecture platform itself is literally emblazoned with a promise to lift everybody into the middle class.
