For a claim that the electoral results had national significance, the
campaigns had to focus prominently on national issues--which, of
course, they did. But War and Peace is always and only a national
issue. And during the campaign Obama proposed a Congressional
resolution giving himself the powers of a Bush to attack one side in
the Syrian civil war. In that context a *Socialist* campaign for any
office, however humble, had a very great deal to do with "Syria." What
should our opinion have been of a "socialist" party that in the 1936
election refused to include in its platform a denunciation of
Roosevelt's embargo against the Spanish Republic because "what does a
member of a City Council have to do with Spain, anyway?"
