Too big for britches, Part 2

Peggy Noonan had a long piece on opinionjournal.com yesterday recounting her time working for Dan Rather and assessing the man. Her view is that simple Texas boy Dan wanted to ascend the world of establishment media and gave in to the pressure to become an establishment liberal clone to do it. What he didn't realize was that the world had changed and success in 2004 no longer means sucking up to the establishment liberal world at all costs. It's a sad story that Rather's later treachery will outshadow a fairly good career. How different from the feel of the Tom Brokaw send-off.
