Over at Instapundit , in the course of calling David Frum a Gloomy Gus, Glenn Reynolds writes :

conservatives and libertarians should be feeling a lot better than they did a few months ago, as the Obama aura is dissipating much faster than even the most optimistic might have expected.

Is this right? I know that, in recent days, I have been more optimistic about the turning-back of at-least the worst ideas for health-care reform and cap-and-trade, but do others feel the same?

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
