As I stated earlier on another thread, I believe George Will has been freed from the shackles of having been on a very liberal leaning show on ABC (This Week), and is now much more able to express his more conservative beliefs without repercussion. I think you will see a continued conservative vocalization by George Will now that he has been liberated in his own mind to speak his own mind. I expect he will follow in the same vein in the future.
He sure doesn’t seem comfortable in the shout- and slug-fests that pass for “discussion” on these shows.
Will is what I would call a “Traditionalist.” He has his occasionally liberal leanings, but they are well within the American tradition. I’ve actually been thinking that the term “Conservative” has been so maligned by the Left, that we should re-brand as “Traditionalist.” Even Americans on the left respect tradition, whether it be in their family or the nation as a whole.
