Dave, One of your best articles. Looking back at the changes occurring around 1980, I remember that somehow Reagan channelled the Iranian hostage rescue fiasco into a denunciation of all things Carter represented- in particular his call for sacrifice in reducing energy use. From that point on, shared sacrifice and questioning America's assumed righteousness seemed unpatriotic and certain to cost you an election. Maybe it would have been a different world if the hostage rescue attempt was a great success? Probably not, but one wonders.
