Where Are the Leaders?

This past Thursday, I was privileged to take my three sons to a tea party rally featuring conservative Michael Reagan, son of our 40th President Ronald Reagan. Michael had mentioned something that I've been mulling over since then. He had mentioned many people have said to him, even liberal Alec Baldwin, that they wished they had his Dad back. In a larger sense, I believe we in the conservative camp want to know where our leaders are. On the right we have many wonderful authors, such as Ann Coulter and Dick Morris. We also have amazing show hosts, such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. But aside from our celebrities, leadership seems to be missing. Aside from possibly Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, conservatives are severly lacking in leadership. We often bemoan the fact that we do not have a Ronald Reagan.
Michael then gestured to the crowd and reminded us that we are the leaders. We are the future of the conservative movement. Future governers, Senators, Congressmen, and Presidents are coming out of this movement.
To answer the question I titles this entry with, the leaders of tomorrow may be looking back at you in the mirror.
