Even while votes were still pouring in across the Midwest, West and Richland County, the pundits were already asking:
What's next for the Republican Party.
The "experts" on both Fox News and NBC were asking guests and other "experts" to predict what would happen to the GOP in the wake of a looming loss by Mitt Romney. One that ended up occuring in a rout.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was already questioning the party's "hard-ass" stance before the election, in an article in Politico earlier this week that was posing tough questions for the future of the Republican Party.
What do you think?
Should the party get softer? Or harder?
Who is the face of the GOP? Who should it be?
