Ken Vogel and Michael Calderone muse on the meaningof Glenn Beck’s starring role at the Conservative Political Action Conference, which they argue “marks a new level of personal political engagement” from the talk show host. If anything, it marks the Tea Party’s move to the center of the conservative movement.
Last year, the first round of Tea Parties were held at the same time as CPAC — the D.C. Tea Party was held a few miles down the road.

I’ll expect Democrats to hit Republican attendees of CPAC for sharing a stage with Beck, who faced weeks of scrutiny after accusing President Obama of bearing “a deep-seated hatred for white people.” But as Grover Norquist points out to Politico, people like Ann Coulter have always appeared at CPAC, said a few outrageous things, then gone on to sell their books. Beck (who’s also got books to sell) is going to provide some plan for action.
