Joe Manchin: Racist or Profile in Courage
If the senator, who has consistently voted for his party's agenda, can be charged with
racism for standing on principle and tradition, does that not suggest that Manchin is right about the poisoned character of our politics? No. History is not going to condemn Joe Manchin. History is more likely to judge Manchin's actions as meeting standards that former President John F. Kennedy set for senators in "Profiles in Courage."
