New Republic;8/7/2006, Vol. 235 Issue 6, p6
The article reports that the Republican Party is now more divided than the Democrats. The issues that once united the Christian right and the traditional conservatives, like national security and the war on terror, are no longer the rallying points they once were. Now abortion rights and immigration are splitting the party.
