    Brooks calls for a new Republican party that can win in the West and Northeast. Here's where the analysis fails .. because such a Republican party would look a lot like the Democratic party that is already winning in the West and Northeast.
    Would be the old Republican party. At least a Republican party that had room for Nelson Rockefeller, John Lindsay, Jacob Javits  Lincoln Chafee and Dwight Eisenhower.  Even Ronald Reagan wouldn't be welcome in today's Republican party, although, the monster that is currently the Republican party is largely his and Richard Nixon's doing. Personally, it would be welcome, because the Democrats could become Democrats again and leave the Republican the Republicans.
