What should conservatives do?

Now that dreams of a 2010 victory are dancing like sugarplums in Republicans’ heads, and although they may turn out to be only dreams, it may be time for conservatives and Republicans to think more seriously about how they would govern if voters give them a chance. Food for thought comes from Britain, where the capital-C Conservatives are heavy favorites to win the general election that must be held by May 2010, and where, as Spectator editor and ace political analyst Matthew D’Ancona indicates, Conservative leader David Cameron has been doing some serious thinking along these lines. As we debate the Democrats’ health care bills and their economic policies, there are more basic issues to keep in mind.
