A reader in Oregon responds:
Ronald Reagan is a giant hero for civilization but if, under him, the Republican Party became the “party of ideas” it wasn’t Reagan’s ideas. Reagan didn’t have ideas so much as he had principles, truths, and optimism. These things Palin has in spades. Damn right the GOP can be a party of ideas under Palin — under her it will once again be enthused and guided by overarching conservative views of what this country needs — then the ideas will flow like 1980-88 all over again.
