The Washington Note Archives:Wilkerson is a conservative with a conscience and with a profound sense of duty and obligation to the nation, and it is a sad comment that in the climate we are in today, conservatives with a conscience are mostly abandoned by the right and are increasingly embraced by the left. This really does speak to a possible solutions-oriented, radical centrism that unites the Wilkersons and van den Heuvels in a serious discussion about national interest and foreign policy in the coming year. Technorati tags: liberal, conservative, centrist, Lawrence Wilkerson Of course since I am from neither major party I welcome this sort of unity. I look at the person or candidate and what they want to do for the people. You will never get anyone whether liberal or conservative to completely agree with everything you stand for. Which is why you must evaluate people on more than a few issues but rather numerous issues.
