Given that the war will not improve, what then will most likely affect electoral outcomes in the US? Thatâ€™s where the unpredictability comes in. I would ask, however, that we take a couple of things into account. First, the Democratic Leadership Council â€“ which might engineer a primary victory for Clinton; and second, aside from the war, polls show, Americans (these averages are tricky, the average voter has one testicle and one breast) are most concerned withâ€¦ terrorism.
The latter is the result of a very impressive bit of mass indoctrination, but it has tremendous material force nonetheless, especially in elections, which are spectacles of indoctrination. Iâ€™ll return to the dangerous significance of this after we take a short tour through the Democratic Leadership Council.
