Telling Anecdote from the "Post-Ideological World"

From Adam Nicolson's "The strange death of liberal America" in the Daily Telegraph, UK: "A professor of history from Yale, who I happened to sit next to on one of my inter-city flights, told me he was earnestly praying for a dreadful downturn in the American economy. 'Otherwise we are stuck with this administration for the next five years and I don't know what damage that is going to do to America's standing in the world.'"
