Daniel McCarthy, editor of The American Conservative, has a new piece that considers “how Republican foreign policy lost the culture war—and a generation.” He writes, “The root of the GOP’s problem now is the same as that of the Democrats in 1969: the party’s reputation has been ruined by a botched, unnecessary war—Vietnam in the case of the Democrats, Iraq for the GOP.” McCarthy continues, “Until the Republican Party can come to grips with its failure, the Democrats will be the party Americans trust to govern.”
