Homer, revised

I’ve thought about this possibility for several days. How best to end infighting among Democratic candidates? Have Athena step in, raising a shout that stops “all fighters in their tracks”:

Homer, Odyssey 24, trans. Robert Fitzgerald (1961), revised by me.

Come together, Democrats, “or Zeus who views the wide world may be angry.”

As a lifelong Dem, I just cannot believe that this party cannot pull together and do something. Is it leadership at the top of the DNC or what?

I've been reading T H Whites' "The Making of the President 1960." Absolutely fascinating reading to see how the campaigns were run then.

Yes, where is Athena when we need her???
