Washington Post columnist George Will explains why the mayorship of Bill de Blasio will ultimately be a net positive for American conservatism on this weekend's broadcast of "Fox News Sunday":

Partial transcript as follows:

“I hope there has been a resurgence,” Will said. “There is nothing better for American conservatism than periodic examples of untrammeled liberalism. Lyndon Johnson after 1964 had huge majorities in Congress, had his way. Republicans won five of the next six and seven of the next nine presidential elections. Let him have his way in New York City and let people see what happens. There are more than 130 contracts of public employees’ unions held in abeyance until Mayor Bloomberg got out of there, because they assumed de Blasio and his compliant, not to say supine city council will go along with anything they ask for. I give him three years. People will be begging for a return to something else.”
