Daniel Larison, whom I haven’t read in a while, is shrill:
Millbank may not realize it, but “fighting for the political center” is practically identical to the other dubious theme. The cult of centrism and the festishization of civility are closely linked, and in both cases they usually amount to endorsing whatever the Washington consensus happens to be. This message is not very compelling. Indeed, as Huntsman’s poor showing in polls suggests, it means nothing to most people.
Whole thing’s worth a read. And Jon Huntsman isn’t going anywhere. And Dana Milbank sucks.
