Conservatives and McCain
With McCain the certain Republican nominee, much has been made of the strong reaction to McCain by some conservatives. A very interesting take on this dynamic was written up by John Podhoretz of Commentary magazine. I think he provides some interesting perspectives on McCain. I'm sure his experience as prisoner of war taught him to march to the beat of a different drummer. It should be a very interesting election race between McCain and either Clinton or Obama. In the meanwhile, I suspect McCain will spend time trying to rebuild bridges with disgruntled conservatives. His first effort was speaking at the CPAC convention today. He certainly accented his conservative views, primarily on economic issues.
