CIA Insider Analyzes The 1988 Election: (2)
Former CIA official John Stockwell looks at the 1988 presidential elections.
He analyzes the amazing loss by the Democrats of a seemingly certain
victory. He also assesses what a Bush administration can be, particularly
when so many people inside and outside the government, at home and abroad,
have knowledge of so much damaging information about Bush's past. Stockwell
views the elections from the power elite and ruling class perspective in
which we operate under a single party system which is split in two, with
both parties being controlled by powerful ruling class institutions and
individuals. He places Dukakis' performance within this framework.
