Tomorrow is the CPAC convention in Washington, DC. This year (unlike last year) Senator John McCain has agreed to address the convention. Could it be the senator's last chance to win over conservatives?
I heard that he's planning to open his speech with some footage of Ronald Reagan. That's all well and good, but John McCain is not Ronald Reagan. What can John McCain say that will convince conservatives to vote for him in November, if he is the nominee? That his distaste for authority won't extend to the Constitution or the authority of the electorate? That he's willing to appoint Supreme Court Justices that may overturn McCain-Feingold, or deny Constitutional protections to terrorists? That he'll stand up to the liberals on the other side of the aisle?
I believe that most conservatives are forgiving people. Especially if we are shown respect by those who ask for our trust. Senator McCain needs us to win an election. The ball is in his court. Let's see how he plays it.
