The Republican Coalition
We learned a lot when Harriet Miers was nominated. On our own show several weeks ago, the guys at redstate.org felt genuinely betrayed, and Republican fundraiser Richard Viguerie was livid. You learn a lot when someone’s bitter enough to let his guard down, and we learned that there are fractures in this gem we call the GOP. Did Miers cause or reveal these fault lines, and where do they run? Can the Republican party be rearranged in time for 2006, or does it even need to be? Forget Fitzgerald; what does the party consist of now, and what’s it going to look like in a year?
