People are trying to figure out what's going on with the republicans. Mark Shields nutshells it: The GOP is becoming more white as the U.S. becomes less white. Fearful white people (by nature, conservatives) who are fearful of what a less white population means for them are what makes up the republican party today. Some people fear change. Others embrace it. Today's republican party is in disarray as it tries to figure out what it wants to be. It needs stronger leaders who are Hispanic and black, etc. -- people who are more diverse. Before the GOP can represent America it needs to represent America.
