I think it's going to be really fascinating to see how Southern Conservatives respond to David Cameron.  Southern Conservatives worship C.S. Lewis and Winston Churchill (I can say this because growing up in the South you have no idea how many conservative boomer age men I have heard quoting Lewis and Churchill to me).  So how are they going to respond now when you have this conservative British Prime Minister who talks about fighting a war on poverty, who talks about his faith in God as going "in and out," who is comfortable with gay people, who is comfortable with evolution?

The American Right has to know that Cameron's way is the future of conservatism.  This cocoon they have constructed for themselves against the modern world cannot survive much longer.  When we have Republican politicians in the South quoting David Cameron instead of Churchill, that is when we are going to have achieved real progress in this country.
