Excellent advice for us Mitt supporters.
I think McCain will be the nominee, and it is time to face up to that and work to ensure McCain will be our Commander-In-Chief and will nominate Supreme Court Justices.
There are seven reasons for anyone to support the eventual nominee no matter who it is: The war and six Supreme Court justices over the age of 68.
OK, where do I get my McCain bumper sticker. . . ?
There is no margin for error in 2008. Precisely because the left controls key levers of the culture, politics is the only real route to balance. America is not that far from sliding into the culture and politics of Europe, and so conservatives simply can’t afford a sweeping political loss right now. I never bought into the idea that it made sense to punish the GOP in 2006, presumably to build momentum for a great Republican victory in 2008. That strategy doesn’t seem to have gotten us very far. In any case, there is simply no place for it now. If a Democrat wins the presidency and carries a substantial majority of congress to boot, there will be sweeping changes that conservatives may never be able to turn back. For one thing, several Supreme Court justices will quickly retire, to receive the most liberal replacements conceivable.
“With Hillary Clinton, John McCain would start as a very moderate favorite,” pollster Scott Rasmussen said. “McCain would have the edge among independent voters. He is viewed very favorably by independents and Senator Clinton struggles in that area.”
Pollster John Zogby agreed, saying, “Obama does better against McCain than Hillary does because she is so polarizing. … A lot of people will simply be voting against her.”
Not that pollsters have known what they are talking about this primary season (especially Zogby who was saying Romney was up 8 in California).
