Skull Twisting Test

Before you go following the link to read on, I invite you to the challenge of identifying the subject referred to in the following quote from an an interview in Front Page Magazine:
<insert name> do care about preserving their own power, but I believe they are liberals to the core, and as such, they actually believe that their power is for the greater good. They will do whatever it takes to protect their political careers -- including trampling on anyone who gets in their way -- not simply because they crave power, but because they truly believe their political careers are for the benefit of "the public" or "the country" as a whole. It's a paternalistic, narcissistic perspective that invades liberalism in general, and <insert name> in particular.
How splendidly this little excerpt draws a circle around our little pompous cabal clinging to the rocks of power like a rash of barnacles.
