    DUNCAN: Goldwater plus 50: Looking back at the launch of conservatism

    Fifty years ago yesterday, I was in the Cow Palace in San Francisco when Sen. Barry Goldwater accepted the presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention.

  • Artist Robert Sutz works on a life mask in his studio on April 28, 2014 in Scottsdale, Ariz.  The statue of the late U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater that will eventually move to the U.S. Capitol is at the center of an artists' feud.  A Scottsdale artist has accused the statue's creator of using one of his pieces for the project without giving him credit. Deborah Copenhaver Fellows, of Sonoita, unveiled the 8-foot-tall statue of Goldwater on March 31 at the Arizona Capitol. Sutz says Copenhaver Fellows based her work on a plaster life mask of Goldwater that he made. Copenhaver Fellows has denied the claim, saying she made her own mold for the sculpture.

    EDWARDS: Roaring along conservatism's rocky road

    Political wise guys would have you believe that conservatives these days have but two options: either assisted living in a senior community or a bed in a hospice. We are headed for the ash heap of history, where we will be buried without honors — a footnote, at best, to 20th-century politics.

    BLACKWELL: Conservatives must learn how to win

    PRUDEN: Newt Gingrich and the 'moral thing'

    Politicians can't any longer talk about "moral character" without sounding like a stuffy Baptist deacon or a stiff Presbyterian elder. "Moral character" is no longer important in a presidential campaign, even to many conservatives and evangelicals. If it is important anymore, it is only as a talking point.
