The Morning After: the Political Landscape in a post-2012 World

In a post-2012 era, I am looking at three things:

  • Immigration is now front and center.
  • The Republican Party, and the Right handside of the American polity is going to go through a reassessment and restructuring
  • We really, really need to get a party or two (I am thinking Green and Libertarian) to clear the 5% bar that gives a party a permanent slot in politics.

We'll get back to the others, but with regard to #2 above, someone mentioned Reihan Salam as an up-and-coming player in the Republican Party. Anyone heard, read, talked to, know him?
