A few years ago, the Conservative Political Action Conference, better known as CPAC, was a place for conservatives to exchange ideas and strategize for a time when they might be in power in Washington.

Now they are in power.

With the GOP in control of the White House and the Senate, how do conservatives see their movement's future? Is the path clear for them to pursue their agenda? And who decides what that agenda is?

1A spent the day at CPAC, talking to some of the movement's major players and up-and-comers.
