Are there any Democrats you like?

There's an interview with Norman Podhoretz in the Sunday Times Magazine that's meant to coincide with the release of his new book, Why are Jews Liberals? I particularly liked this question because he gives the answer I would have given.
Are there any Democrats you like?
Joe Lieberman among the living, and Scoop Jackson and Pat Moynihan among the departed.
Jonah Goldberg discusses a more difficult answer given by Podhoretz here.

funny, podhertz hates the majority of living dem pols...including the jewish ones who support israel

are you the same carl?

and despite his support of jewish causes and israel, podhertz still hates ted kennedy, and amazingly says the kennedy's achievments were "paltry"

what a nasty, angry old fart.

havent read his book yet, but im sure i can find it online.

but if he chooses to neglect including the right wing's embrace of the christian right (which has gone out of its way to hide it rabid anti semitism) as a very good reason as to why jews continue to vote dem...then the book isnt worth the paper it is printed on.
