Churchill and America

The relationship between Churchill and America is a wonderful theme, and not only because Winston once said of himself, "I am myself an English-speaking Union." The Ashbrook Center and the Churchill Centre have organized a Churchill and America National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute for high school teachers. It will run from July 23 to August 5 at Ashland University. The co-directors for the program are Professors James Muller (Alaska) and Justin Lyons (Ashland). They, and the other distinguished faculty may be found here. Here is how to apply. Thirty teachers will be selected to attend. Graduate credit may be received for the course. It will be a tremendous seminar. Pass the word.

I am very curious as to why conservatives like Churchill. I’d appreciate it if anyone could tell me. I read the Gilbert (I think?) biography of Churchill and he indicated that Churchill was fully in accord with Roosevelt concerning the New Deal. Do conservatives like Churchill because of his strong war leadership, while ignoring the rest of his political positions, or do they ignore his politics and concentrate only on his character because he had such a full life? Or maybe conservatives ignore the acceptance of the New Deal because Churchill later said the socialism represented by the labor party was like Nazi Germany (I believe he said this right before he was defeated in 1945; it was while the war was still going on).
