"I can’t say that for certain, as it depends who emerges from the vicissitudes of the primary campaign to be the nominee, but I have a hunch that the GOP is going to keel over in the near future. Its social conservatism is simply untenable in the long run; by 2020 it might be completely unpalatable. Its foreign policy is better suited for Call of Duty rather than the real world. Its right on entitlement reform and cutting spending to be absolutely necessary, but it never actually does anything about it -- and when it does, its efforts are best described as 'milquetoast.'"
