As a follow-up to John's post about the NY Slimes' story about the Thompson sons going into lobbying, NRO's Jim Geraghty finds no "smoking gun" paragraph in it. He concludes with:
Basically, the article amounts to a complaint about nepotism, in a race featuring a President's wife (Hillary), an admiral's son (McCain), a governor's son (Romney), at least one son of a senator (Dodd) and maybe another (Gore). All of this to succeed the son of a President. We can lament how having well-connected parents can help someone get started in a competitve business, but that train left the station a long time ago.Indeed.
