Phil, I agree entirely with your last post. I didn’t mean to imply that I don’t think McCain has an opening– I think he does. He has sprung to life because of his role on Iraq. When others are squabbling over silly things ( e.g.did Romney really control the nasty website) he really does look like a mature leader. I know he’s offended many movement conservatives, was never a Reagan tax cutter and was at odds with the base on immigration and campaign finance reform(ok that is a lot but stick with me for a moment) but maybe he’s a pretty good option for social conservatives. He’s always been pro-life, he does talk about faith, and he’s against gay marriage (but not for the Romney or latest Thompson version constitutional amendments). Probably just too much water under the bridge for movement conservatives and my own list suggests it’s an uphill fight but… the man knows how to campaign and how to debate. (If he raises some money this quarter it will get interesting.)
