In the wake of this last election, many conservatives have insisted that America is still a center-right country. They attribute the defeat of November's elections to the Bush administration's "betrayal" of conservatives with deficit spending and foreign adventures. Columnist Mark Steyn tells host Scott Simon why he doubts that the Republican Party can win the next election even if it reclaims its basic principles.

Mark Steyn is a columnist, author and musical theater critic who writes for his own Web site, National Review, and many other publications.
