Caddell and Schoen on Obama: A Cynical Divider on Race and Class

From the pro-American Left — remember them? — Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen have a remarkable op-ed in the Wall Street Journal this morning on the failed promise of President Obama to transcend racialist politics and class warfare. They write:

By dividing America, Mr. Obama has brought our government to the brink of a crisis of legitimacy, compromising our ability to address our most important policy issues.
