Liberals of the writer’s generation have done enough soul searching. Now it’s conservatives’ turn—and may it last a good long time!
I don’t mean to overstate things. The 2012 election didn’t rise to the political scientists’ definition of a realigning election. The Republican Party will continue to be competitive; we’ll remain a divided country, although not exactly a 50-50 country; maybe a 52-48 country, which is a difference. But the GOP, and conservatism, will have to change. I’ve spent an entire adult lifetime watching my side have to adapt to reality. Let them shovel the snow for a while.
