Moynihan's a complicated guy...

So far in the mid-1990s, in the (unsuccessful) fight against the destruction of AFDC, in the (successful) fight against the balanced budget amendment, and in the (so far unsuccessful) fight against the cult of secrecy of the national security state, Moynihan has made much more noise and exhibited much more energy than anyone else in the senate.

Think of a U.S. Senate in which Daniel Patrick Moynihan is the left wing...
