The Breadth of Political Vision

Kate O'Beirne says that Republican House of Representative seats lost in states such as Pennsylvania and Connecticut will be difficult to win back in two years. That is true as far as it goes, but it also shows the deficiencies of Republican strategists who focus on "mobilizing the base." Anyone that looked at an electoral map in 1964 would have never predicted the outcomes in 1972, 1980, or 1984. If Republicans, including conservative Republicans, wish to regain momentum, they must regain a vision for taking the battleground of ideas to every corner of the country.
