McCain will lose in a big way — either Dole ’96 big or Goldwater ’64 big.
Bush 41 and Dole did not use their war hero status.
That’s all McCain has. . . .

I am so torn. Arguments from the anti-McCain camp, e.g., Limbaugh and Ingraham, and from the pro-McCain camp, e.g., Victor Davis Hansen, are both very convincing. To sit it out or to not sit it out if he is nominated, that is the question.
If it is an issue of national security, my preference would be for McCain over Hillary or Obama. In which case, I feel I may have a moral obligation to cast my vote for McCain. We are in a struggle for our civilization’s survival and McCain is best equipped to lead the war.
Yet, if McCain’s loss, due to the base staying home, sets the stage for the emergence of a true conservative in 2012, a conservative of the caliber of a Ronald Reagan and one who can beat Hillary, then I think my staying home can be justified.
