Warren G. Harding and Donald J. Trump

I never thought I'd be linking to an article by William Kristol, but these are indeed strange and wondrous times — The Trump Administration. The neocon writes:
    The brief Harding administration—and for that matter the eight years constituting his administration and that of his vice president and successor, Calvin Coolidge—may not have been times of surpassing national greatness. But there were real achievements, especially in the economic sphere; those years were not disastrous; they were not dark times.
When Mr. Kristol says the '20s "may not have been times of surpassing national greatness" he means that they were times of peace; in neoconspeak "national greatness" equals war.
