Victor Davis Hanson - The Mythologies of the 2016 Election

Hanson sums it up elegantly. Yes, it's 44 minutes and everyone pure gold.

The video runs about 45 minutes. The final 20 minutes are questions and answers, but some of his most pointed comments come in the final 20 minutes. I think this is worth your time if you, like me, continue to try to sort things out. | Power Line

I watched with my wife last night. Now we have a little (OK, a lot!) more clarity, as is always the case with VDH. His ability to see things fairly is uncanny.

Now, Lorie is a fan of VDH, too.

My goodness, an adult talking about politics; how utterly refreshing.

Always like reading VDH, was really enlightening to see him speak.

Thanks for sharing Gerard.

This guy has mastered the art of clear thinking,
pragmatism and the English language. One of the best I have ever heard.
Thank you.

It's interesting that he can still spot a conservative here and there at Stanford. That wouldn't happen at Yale even if you had special 4D sunglasses.
