We must choose between a party that neglects the poor and one that savages
them, between a party that defers to the rich and one that deifies them,
between a party that abjectly apologizes for government and one that
demonizes it. One party signs a Faustian contract with the devil. The
other party offers the contract. Better Faustus than Mephistopheles.
-- historian Garry Wills on the choice offered in the 1996 U.S.
Presidential elections - between the Faustus of the Democratic
Party and the Mephistopheles of the Republican Party.
