The right-wing ideology that ran the US for thirty years has proven to be a total failure and the passage of health care reform was the final nail in its coffin. In case you've forgotten, classic conservatism promised to keep us safe, reduce the size of government, lower taxes, and manage the economy. Republican broke each of these commitments.

Conservatism is not dead. It just hasn't been practiced.

Clinton came the closet. Maybe Reagan 80, but Reagan 84 was awful.

In fact, the dominant paradigm is neoconservatism, which is very liberal. Bush was a neocon and Obama isn't very much different.

Dead? Unfortunately, no, at least not yet. They will probably never be dead, Lately, we've seen the hardliners purging moderates from the Republican party, and they're going to purge themselves right into irrelevancy, especially once the largely conservative older generation dies off. Once that happens, we'll probably see a return to a true Republican party, not the Reagan/Bush/Religious Neocon failure.

It defies all logic, and it's not going to happen.

Obama was put into office by Independents or middle of the road voters as most elected officials are. I got news for you, they aren't happy. When they pass HCR let the rest of know.
