I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Writing off the majority

"It worked for six years, but now people are seriously over the "I'm wrong, but resolute" personality type."

Clinton urges start of Iraq pullout in 90 days
Feb 17, 2007 — WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the early front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, has called for a 90-day deadline to start pulling American troops from Iraq.
make up for this?
Clinton Gives War Critics New Answer on ’02 Vote
Mrs. Clinton rolled out a new response to those demanding contrition: She said she was willing to lose support from voters rather than make an apology she did not believe in.

“If the most important thing to any of you is choosing someone who did not cast that vote or has said his vote was a mistake, then there are others to choose from,” Mrs. Clinton told an audience in Dover, N.H., in a veiled reference to two rivals for the nomination, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois and former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.
So let me get this straight, Hillary wants to be the Democratic nominee for president but has just told the vast majority of the Democratic base and a majority of Americans to vote for someone else. John is right, we really have had enough of "I'm wrong, but resolute" personality type.". We have also had more than enough of presidents that won't admit or take responsibility for their mistakes. Yes Hillary, there are other choices and I will be choosing one of them.

Paul Krugman has some thoughts.
