Republicans 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?
