A dime's worth of difference

I don't subscribe to the notion, but if you believe in the Nadarite (or, perhaps, Paulite) view of the two parties, then this is an absolutely must-read post from Digby.  In it, that partisan apologist for the Democratic party, Noam Chomsky, explains that even a small difference between the two parties makes a huge difference -- for civil rights, for the environment, for a modicum of economic justice -- over time.

About that dime?  Well, as Einstein was said to have replied when asked to name the greatest invention of mankind, "compound interest."
