As the 2014 midterm elections heat up and the political world prepares for the presidential race soon after, there's been a vibrant discussion on the right about offering a positive conservative governing agenda.

In the latest edition of "Dialogue," I talk to Yuval Levin, one of the most influential policy thinkers on the right, about the movement that has become known as "reform conservatism." Levin, a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and editor of National Affairs, recently helped put together the book "Room to Grow" for the YG Network, which offers a range of policy ideas.

Levin responds to skeptics of reform conservatism on both the left and right, distinguishes the intellectual movement from the brand of "compassionate conservatism" that defined George W. Bush's presidency, discusses a middle-class friendly tax policy, and delves into the challenge of crafting a market-oriented health care proposal in the post-Obamacare era.
