This may seem odd coming from a Democrat who lives in the city that led the Confederate Rebellion, but one thing is very clear from the Republican presidential primary – our state and nation desperately needs to see the return of the party of Lincoln. It will be good for Republicans and Democrats, and most importantly, good for our state and country as a whole. …

How different is the Republican Party today, both nationally and in South Carolina. Today their presidential candidates are almost all lacking in any serious leadership capacity. Instead of articulating real policy solutions, they fall all over each other trying to get to the most extreme right wing position to appeal to their Party’s ideological base – see immigration, abortion and no tax pledges. If one of today’s contenders dared to use candidate George W. Bush’s phrase ‘compassionate conservative,’ he would be eaten alive by the likes of Fox News, Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh.
