Conservative comeback?

    What would take for a conservative comeback? We talk with DAVID FRUM author of Comeback: Conservatism That Can Win Again. In it he analyzes why a generation of young people has turned its back on the Republican party, why Republicans can no longer win elections on taxes, guns, and promises to restore traditional values, and what new approach is needed to regain lost ground. Frum is a former special assistant to President Bush for economic speechwriting (2001-2002), and is also the author of The Right Man: The Surprise Presidency of George W. Bush published in January 2003, and co-author with Richard Perle of An End To Evil: What’s Next in the War on Terror released in 2004.
