Will’s Take: CPAC Is Diverse Yet Civil

by NRO Staff

Despite the great variety of conservative opinions present at CPAC, George Will thinks that there is little bad blood. “My impression there was that if there’s a civil war in the Republican party it’s an awfully civil civil war,” Will said on Special Report tonight.

Everyone from McCain-style neocons to Rand Paul  non-interventionists are at the event, and, Will noted, “It’s perfectly possible to go there, be happy, and be in favor of same-sex marriage.”

According to Will, it’s exactly this lack of consensus that explains “why it’s a civil place. That is, heterodoxy has broken out all over the place in the conservative movement,” yet the movement still holds together.
