George Will's America

Download Audio
Conservative columnist George Will's career has traced the rise, and what many conservatives now fear is the fall, of the conservative movement in America.

His first column appeared in The Washington Post in 1974. In the Reagan years, his bow tie, polished wit, and penchant for quoting British lords, made him one of the most widely read and seen commentators in the country — on topics from baseball to politics.

Now, George Will is sour on Iraq, sour on John McCain, and watching a moment of deep conservative unease.

This hour, On Point: a conversation with George Will.Guest:

George Will, columnist for The Washington Post and Newsweek and commentator for ABC's "This Week." His new book is, "One Man's America: The Pleasures and Provocations of Our Singular Nation."

This program aired on June 9, 2008.
