The Meaning of Yesterday’s Defeat | Power Line

But there is a much more important proposition that, I think, was proved false last night: that America is a center-right country. This belief is one that we conservatives have cherished for a long time, but as of today, I think we have to admit that it is false. America is a deeply divided country with a center-left plurality. This plurality includes a vast number of citizens who describe themselves as moderates, but whose views on the issues are identical or similar to those that have historically been deemed liberal.

Another important observation. Well, one silver lining. A lot of smart people on the right are going to be reflecting deeply and writing a lot of interesting stuff in the next few days. --TS
