The second lesson of Romney's defeat

The aftermath of the US election reveals the old left-right ideological battle is dead, and if Abbott doesn't seek a more pragmatic approach he'll fall on his sword.

The early signs are that the Republican Party is ripping itself to pieces following the US election. They're infuriated by the fact that women, young voters and major non-white ethnic groups got the guy they wanted – Barack Obama – rather than the guy they ought to have wanted, Mitt Romney.

How dare they. Democracy was never supposed to be like this.
