Time to stop electoral 'war bongos' for global economic recession, says Conservative spinner Powers

Conservatives looking forward, working on 'the here and now' and want more cooperation in the fall.

POWERS: As a Conservative who reads books, I just had to tear myself away from the Michael Ignatieff gem, "I Am Great and You Are Not." It was tough to do as I discovered some of Ignatieff's relatives believed they had the divine right to govern and such theories of manifest destiny have always fascinated me. In "I am Great and You Are Not," we also discover that our man thinks big. He has grand visions with big price tags. Welcome back to the 1970s, ladies and gentlemen.
