    If they can, if they can give up their preoccupation with "special rights for special people", and get back to equal rights for all, their dreams of a blue wave might come true.

    Unfortunately I think they are too predisposed to the idea at this point, but yes, it would lead to more a middle ground.

    It's part of a general shift to corporatism (interest group governance), that both parties are indulging.

    The short answer? No.

    I think the better question is, can the republicans? If they dropped Trumpism and pitched a big tent, they could dominate politics in this country for decades. Instead, they are hitching their wagon to a prize racehorse whose prime has long fled by.
