Fascinating article on the state of George Bush’s relationship with one of his key constituencies – the hard core conservatives. Caroline Daniel reckons he rode out the storm that carried in the wake of Katrina, but his appointment of a ‘liberal’ (ie insufficiently conservative) to the Supreme Court will test his mettle as a political operator.
