Big tent, really?

Colin Powell called on the Republican Party to debate and broaden its base. Is that really a good idea? Perhaps the time has come for Republicans to create a platform-a realistic representation of the majority of membership. Those participants who disagree-too far left or too far right, it matters not–should leave and create a new stronger third party.

Can this group reasonably erect a tent big enough to cover fundamentalist Christians and social liberal Republican? Is this possible? The 2008 election shows that’s just not possible.
