    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.

    I had a very exciting time at the Republican National Convention. My conservative allies and I all worked very hard in the presidential election. When I woke up the day after the election, everything I had worked for appeared to be in ruins. An extreme leftist had been re-elected president of the United States.

    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.

    MAGGIANO: Our new time for choosing

    When Ronald Reagan stepped up to the podium to deliver a speech on behalf of presidential candidate Barry Goldwater on Oct. 27, 1964, he had no idea that he was about to launch what would later be known as the Reagan Revolution. Yet this address, which was videotaped and broadcast nationwide, transformed Reagan from a washed-up actor into a leading conservative politician and ultimately led to his election as the nation's 40th president in 1980. Initially called "A Time for Choosing," it is now known simply as "The Speech" and marks a watershed moment in American political history.
