Will the Radicals Win?

I can be heartened by this vignette from Mark Rudd:
During the presidential campaign, just ended, editorials and letters in the student newspaper complained about “radical” or “leftist” faculty who bring their political views into the classroom. The clincher for me was when a young female student, a working secretary at the local airbase, sweetly told me that my crack about Bush’s never having read a book only increased her desire to vote for him. After that I professionally shut up during class.
If only he extended that courtesy to the rest of the day.
