  •  Coalition is fracturing. (1+ / 0-)

    The Republican coalition is the Three Rs - Rich + Religious + Racist.

    I see significant evidence that that coalition is fracturing, or at the least that it is no longer enough alone.  The Republicans are going to have to change their coalition, and it's really not clear what the best direction for that is.

    Drop opposition to Gays?  Try to woo Asians?  Allow women first-class economic opportunity?

    All of these seem impossible now, but something has got to give.
