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.
	   (October 3, 1996 issue of The New York Review of Books.)
