Remember the old Saturday Night Live spoof, where a mock Michael Dukakis says of a mock George H.W. Bush, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy" ?

That's how the Russians must feel about the outcome of the Cold War after listening to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, as reported in Pravda:

Madeleine Albright said during the meeting that America no longer had the intention of being the first nation of the world.  . . .

“My generation has made many mistakes. We give the future into the hands of the young. Your prime goal is to overcome the gap between the poor and the rich,’ the former head of the US foreign political department said.

Remind me . . . who were the Communists again?  Didn't the Soviet Union already spend much of the time between 1917 and 1989 purportedly working to "overcome the gap between the poor and the rich"?  Was winning the Cold War -- thanks to Ronald Reagan's vision and policies -- one of those "mistakes," Madam Secretary?

It would be interesting to hear Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama's views on Albright's commentary.
