« Bizarre blog comments | Main | NYT omits GOP's supply-side claims »

March 28, 2008


I'm with Yglesias, except for his analysis ignores the fact that the Republican party is in a bit of a rough spot in terms of alignment. The conservative coalition hasn't really held together very well under the Bush Presidency's big-government conservatism. I don't want to imply that this is a permanent realignment, but to the extent that the demise of a historical coalition caused the last major period of bipartisanship, a short period of loosened alignment within one of the coalitions could produce a short lived spike in bipartisanship.

Still, I don't think anything else would heal the damage done to the conservative coalition as quickly as a Democratic Presidency.
