Ask Reihan Anything

[Updated from yesterday with many questions added by readers]

Reihan Salam, long-time friend of the Dish, our first kinda-staffer back in the day, and one of the brightest lights among young conservatives, is hard to put in a box:

He is a columnist for The Daily and lead writer of The Agenda blog at National Review, as well as a policy adviser at e21 and a contributing editor at National Affairs. He co-authored Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream with Ross Douthat. … He strongly supported the Iraq war but has since called it a disaster of "world-historical proportions." He advocates policies that strengthen traditional family structure and has supported gay marriage for years. Salam has taken a strong interest in congestion pricing and the encouragement of denser living arrangements, the promotion of natural gas and nuclear power, reform of the U.S. tax code, and the fostering of a more competitive and diverse marketplace of educational providers.

To submit a question for Reihan, simply enter it into the field at the top of the Urtak poll (ignore the "YES or NO question" aspect and simply enter any open-ended question). We primed the poll with questions you can vote on right away – click "Yes" if you have a strong interest in seeing Reihan answer the question or "No" if you don't particularly care. We will air his responses soon. Thanks to everyone for participating.
