The nation's changing demographics won't be a permanent roadblock to a Republican comeback, the former party chairman said Wednesday at a Monitor breakfast.
On Sunday talk shows, he says the 'big tent' party of Reagan and the late Jack Kemp has been replaced by rigid conservatism.
But the court's balance of power may not change much, as Justice Souter, a conservative choice, consistently voted liberal.
He can be a bit professorial, but he's part Reagan, part FDR, and maybe a lot of Teddy Roosevelt.
He is overseeing the boldest expansion of government in a generation. Is it a 'new pragmatism' right for the times or dangerous overreach by a young president?
Chiefs of staff to three former presidents caution that the realities of governing will increasingly set in, perhaps forcing the president to pare down his ambitious agenda.
