Elephant neckties but no donkey neckties are for sale in the Wyndham Hotel gift shop. Ninety-nine kinds of George Bush buttons or cute little heart-shaped buttons with Laura Bush on them.

I realized something on the tiny plane that bounced us from Boston into Ronald Reagan Airport. The reason Republicans were “conservative” for years was that they were out of power. Democrats were running things and spending government money on programs Republicans didn’t want.

Once Republicans started running the country, after 2000 but with power-ups in 2002 and 2004, they used their new power to make some big changes of their own.

Now it’s Democrats wanting things back the way they were.
