Where are we politically?
Question: Where are we politically?
D. Quinn Mills: Politically in the United States, we are split down in the middle, and our last two elections have been virtual ties, which had the Democrats not been so gracious as to concede, might not have ended happily at all. I think the United States is really much more potentially politically unstable than anyone realizes. The notion that the Supreme Court is going to resolve these problems is I think a naive notion. The political figures do not have to accept the Supreme Court decision. That was the decision that the Democrats made. Al Gore made that decision; didn't have to be done. So I think that our system is much more politically unstable than it looks on the surface.
