Elite Nostalgia

Dean Acheson, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Jacques Barzun, George Ball, Brent Scowcroft,  Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Margaret Chase Smith, William F. Buckley Jr., Roy Wilkins,  Norman Cousins, Irving Kristol, S. I. Hayakawa, Daniel Boorstin, Clare Boothe Luce, Norman Podhoretz, Nathan Glazer, etc.

There was a time when members of the "elite" were really, well, sort of elite.
