Meghan McCain is trading a fairly lonely path out there in the Republican minefield - she sounds like her once-moderate, once-decent father of many years ago - and is taking a lot of flack both from left and right.
The Comments thread here often urges her to separate publicly from John on Benghazi or try to turn him around. Anyone know how they get along?
Why the Republican Party Needs to Wake Up
I’ve spent most of my adult life fighting for change from inside the Republican Party. We Republicans need to look at the future instead of living in the past. We have to learn from what the last two presidential elections have taught us. We must accept each other and the different opinions within the party instead of trying to cannibalize people that diverge from an arbitrary purity test. I refuse to let the extremists win. We can’t let the Tea Party bully us any longer. We can’t keep worrying about ultraconservative white male voters. At the end of the day, I still believe I’m on the right side of history, and we can’t let this party sink away. We can and we must evolve. I don’t know exactly how yet, but I for one am ready to spend the next four years helping us get there.
