Paul Rahe

"By behaving in the manner in which he behaved... he exposed, he pulled off the covers, of the tyrannical inclinations that lie at the heart of the administrative state - and people saw it. They saw it before their political leaders saw it."
That is Paul Rahe, of Hillsdale College and Ricochet on the historical significance of Barack Obama. And no, I do not think it is too early at all to pronounce on Obama's historical importance. That might just be the single best segment of interview I have ever seen on Peter Robinson's show.

I like Ricochet, particularly Claire Berlinski, but I will certainly have to read Paul Rahe's book.
