Conservative writers and academics gather for the National Review Institute Summit, beginning on Friday in Washington, D.C.
The summit focuses on addressing the challenges facing conservatism and finding solutions that will strengthen the movement.
First, political newcomer Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AK) sits down for an interview with Jay Nordlinger of National Review.
Next, a panel of experts examine the topic "Can politics be hospitable to life?" Panelists include: Chuck Donovan of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, Jeanne Monahan of March for Life and Carter Snead of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture.
National Review Editor Rich Lowry interviews American Pulitzer Prize-winning Columnist and Political Commentator Charles Krauthammer.
Later, a "Night Owl" session includes discussion with: Kathryn Lopez of the National Review Online, Syndicated Columnist Mona Charen, Kellyanne Conway of The Polling Company, Inc. / WomenTrend and Mayor of Sarasota Springs, Utah Mia Love.
It is amazing the difference the communication of the same ideas can make when one speaks straight, with confidence, and simply.
Contrast Cruz doing this with all the hemming and hawing of the earlier panels this morning, and it is astounding how effective a communicator he really is.

Cruz speaks of conservatism from the heart, based on knowledge. We need more like him who can present our message.
How, if amnesty for illegal immigrants becomes a reality? There’s no way that conservatives can, EVER, match the numbers of new, pro-leftist voters with new, pro-conservative voters, after amnesty for illegal immigrants happens!
I’m attending. Cruz was phenomenal!
How long does he think it's going to take him to get there, and more importantly, would he know it when he sees it, or pass right by?
