The conservative era in US politics came to an end two weeks ago. Though  the 
seeds were sown by Barry Goldwater in 1964, this era truly began in 1980  
when Ronald Reagan's election first brought the conservative movement to power.  
The ascendant right was libertarian in economics, traditional in values and  
confrontational in foreign policy. It called for smaller government, lower  
taxes, a moral dimension in social policy and a more aggressive stance toward  
the Soviet Union. Mr Reagan reversed what had been America's decades-long  
liberal drift, much as Margaret Thatcher did in Britain-Jacob  Weisberg-FT23/11/2006
