I think in 2007 Democrats were divided in a different way: many of us liked both Clinton and Obama. This season, Republicans, with exceptions, don't like either Romney or Santorum. How this carries into the general is important.

Conservatism in the era of Fox News is now just a bumper sticker. The rational Bill Buckley type intellectuals have been silenced. The GOP or what's left of it, has been taken over by reactionary by hyper-emotional sycophants.

Calling Rick Santorum - a Bush Era, deficit spending, career politician a conservative, is laughable.

How intelligent of Joe Nocera to link Santorum with "hitting bottom." Was it similarly sly of the Obama administration to turn the nation's attention to condoms (something quite near to santorum's substance)? How purposefully does Mr. Lizza think the contraception debate was used by Obama to stir up Santorum and his supporters? It seems quite deft.
