FROM THIS EPISODE

With Democrats firmly in charge of the White House and Congress, Karl Rove's "permanent Republican majority" is a distant dream.  We talk with a range of thinkers about restoring the unity and the relevance of the GOP.  Also, an update on unresolved US Senate races in Minnesota, Georgia and Alaska, and November 11, the day America celebrates its veterans of foreign wars.

Main Topic Republicans Regroup as the Opposition 34 MIN, 23 SEC

grand_new_party.jpgRepublicans are pointing fingers at one another, but most agree on one thing: even if John McCain had not lost to Barack Obama, the GOP was in trouble. They were saddled with George Bush and the war in Iraq.  They failed to control healthcare costs or monitor the economy. Now the party of Ronald Reagan has no consensus on leadership or a set or principles to hold its factions together. We ask a cross-section of Republican operatives and philosophers, what should happen next?
