David Freddoso on John McCain

National Review Online: "The most ideologically minded conservatives may be a lost cause for the man who promoted McCain-Feingold, CAFE standards, and a liberalized immigration plan and has few fans on talk radio. But at the margin of McCain’s issue-deficit stands the ambivalent conservative. He likes McCain on Iraq and spending, if he knows his record. He also likes the idea that McCain might win in a general election. His strong disagreements with McCain on other issues would not necessarily preclude him from voting for the senator. If only McCain would stop antagonizing him, and start reminding him why he has supporters like Sens. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) and Sam Brownback (R., Kan.), and how he has amassed a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 82.3."

Will is right about campaign finance.

Not a big fan of McCain, but I think we have MUCH better candidates on our side of the aisle than the dems do. (leaving Ron Paul out of the field, of course)
