Hillary’s biggest problem? Hendrik Hertzberg in this week’s “The New Yorker” reviews the history of dynastic families in American politics . . .

Dynastic Voyage
by Hendrik Hertzberg
October 29, 2007

Great conclusion:
“Bush’s failure to learn much of anything for the past six years suggests a deficit of character, not of experience; his unwillingness to employ his father’s skills and advice on behalf of the nation shows a disrespectful disregard for a dynast’s biggest advantage. He has given both freshness and family a bad name.”

Hertzberg is a frequent columnist for The New Yorker’s ‘Talk of the Town’ section.
