NEW YORK (AP) -CNN- Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and Kennedy insider who helped define mainstream liberalism during the Cold War and remained an eminent public thinker into the 21st century, has died, his son said. He was 89.  Schlesinger suffered a heart attack while dining out with family members Wednesday night in Manhattan, Stephen Schlesinger said. He was taken to New York Downtown Hospital, where he died.

The man’s politics were outright abysmal.  So solidly left wing, that he actually was on George McGovern’s campaign. so what is that the press is going to spend the majority of today heaping praise on the man.  You may notice that I won’t join them.  And yet It’s worth noting that even he came down to the right of just about everyone running for the Democratic Party nomination, today.
