Conservative columnist Ben Domenech weighs in on the news that Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) will replace Ed Feulner as The Heritage Foundation’s president in April:

As for Heritage, this move says a great deal, and a great deal of good, about who won the internal battle for the future of the most influential think-tank on the right. Heritage could have gone in another direction – toward the increasingly ineffective and irrelevant old ways of writing white papers no one reads, criticizing a conservative view just to get in the papers, or regurgitating what the Republican Party nominee thinks about something, except with more numbers and charts. . .

[I]t’s obvious that Heritage just became a far more intimidating entity within the debates in Washington, and that when they choose to move on a policy issue, they will do so with more force and impact than ever before.
