Andrew last week generously linked to an article of mine explaining the evolution of my political thinking.

But the thing I’d most like to discuss in this week of cross-posting at Andrew’s site is: where do we go from here? What’s the mission?

And – maybe even more urgently – how do we express that mission in the clearest and direct way?

Here’s my own elevator pitch describing what I’m trying to develop in my writing and political work:

“A reality-based, culturally modern, socially inclusive and environmentally responsible politics that supports free markets, limited government and a peaceful American-led world order.”

But that’s kind of a mouthful, isn’t it?

So question to all the mighty brains who read Andrew’s site and FrumForum: can you help me do better?
