Moderation in defense of Republicanism


Ambinder notes a possible moderating trend taking place among Republicans in the hinterland. You might add to that the selection of social moderate Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) as second-in-command at the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. The key indicator will be who wins the race for chairman of the Republican National Committee, but it looks like the wind is blowing against the Blackwell-Benkiser social conservative ticket.
