Bill Kristol, of all people, actually wrote those words for his column in the NY Times today.

Well, to be fair I'd forgive him that myself, just looking at that one article.
I don't read it as saying "liberal thinking 'may' be wrong, you 'may' need to think conservative", I read it as saying they need to keep a genuinely open mind.
It does grate with me that certain sects insist that if you 'kept an open mind' you'd automatically agree with them, therefore if you don't, you're close-minded. Especially grating when it comes from those who are demonstrably close minded themselves.
However, I don't necessarily see that here.
In fact, I see that as saying that no-one appears to have the full answer, so watch all quarters.
Am I missing something?
Dr X replies: I think the article is fine. It's just supremely ironic coming from Kristol, of all people. He's like a recalcitrant alcoholic warning everyone else about the dangers of alcohol while never even admitting that he's the one with a serious drinking problem.
