"If you're running to replace a sitting president, your campaign needs a theme beyond 'throw that bum out,' a vision that helps define you and where you think the country should go. You may not have noticed it, but nearly all the Republicans looking to win their party's nomination to run against Barack Obama have settled on the same motif: America is awesome. You were hoping for something a little more meaty? Sorry -- the GOP watchword of the moment is 'American exceptionalism,' and the candidates seem to be banking their campaigns on it." (05/17/11)
