The article reflects on William F. Buckley's ability to engage in intellectual and civil debates compared with the discussions nowadays. He describes how talk-radio is affecting the Republicans and the Democrats in the 2008 presidential elections in the U.S. He asserts that talk-radio and party establishment should complement each other with the party having to address political realities and new ideas while talk-radio creating awareness on political ideas so voters can comprehend them.
