JOE GANDELMAN LOOKS AT CHARLES RANGEL’S PROPOSAL TO RENEW THE DRAFT and asks: “Do some newly ascendant Democrats have a political death wish? Do some seem to want to take the blank slate of imagery the election provided them and scribble a silly or alarming political caricature on it so it will be seized by opponents, then held up as the face of their party as a whole?”

It seems to me that a party’s leadership is the face of the party as a whole.
