Republican-free Cities

Another from Arnold King – a quote from Christopher Caldwell:

Washington, D.C., with its 93-to-4 partisan breakdown, is not that unusual. Hillary Clinton won Cambridge, Massachusetts, by 89 to 6 and San Francisco by 86 to 9. Here, where the future of the country is mapped out, the “rest” of the country has become invisible, indecipherable, foreign.

King’s comment, which caught my attention, was:

1. It is easy to understand why the Washington Post is the way it is. It has to satisfy its market.

2. 60 percent is a landslide. 85 percent is a bubble.
