In this morning's Washington Post, Michael Gerson makes the case that the GOP is getting over its Tea Party hangover. I hope he is right.

Speaker Boehner may be able to take on the tea party caucus in the House. I am not so sure a presidential aspirant can take on the tea party voters in the primaries.
