Let’s Talk Clinton: Michael Dorris

. . . next luminary . . .

He’s doing an honorable job, and he’s strong. His informed support doesn’t waver with the daily news. He shouldn’t try to please everyone, should act like a second-term president. Trust his humane instincts and ’60s idealism.

Finally, he should make prioirity lists and not get diverted from the order. What would he like to look back on with pride 25 years from now, and what doesn’t matter? He has to stand back and find his own perspective and prioirities.


What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
