I think Ronald Reagan showed you could devote the bulk of your political capital to immediate needs — winning the Cold War and whipping stagflation — without totally surrendering on other aspects of your agenda. Reagan wasn’t a culture warrior but the country still knew where he stood on social issues. I think that would be a better model for Mitch Daniels to contemplate than unconditional surrender.
