+ Ellen Goodman has been a longtime Liberal columnist. She has really come through in her latest column. She differentiates the two candidates in a very perceptive way. Excerpts:

It's not news that both these candidates share the same fundamental goals. But one believes that change is fought for in a kind of trench warfare. The other believes that it can come in a transforming wave. And in some ways, this whole primary contest is over which way Democratic voters believe the political world really works.

To some, hope is just another word for naivete. To others, experience is an excuse for cynicism. What people believe about this seems to fall along the actuarial table.
