A reflective question

I'd like to posit a question to those who support John McCain.
I'm fairly certain that in the mix of positions of McCain that you have thoughtfully considered perhaps one of them is "He is electable" as President.
My question goes back to a comment by Richard Nixon "You can't win with the conservative vote only. But, you also can't win without them."
So, as you consider voting or supporting for John McCain this Tuesday, be acutely aware that I have never heard so many conservatives so opposed to any Republican as they are to John McCain. Should McCain go on to win the nomination (though if able when I see Mitt Romney tomorrow evening, I'll remind him that the nomination is in St. Paul in September, not this Tuesday in February). A John McCain nomination seriously risks alienating the conservatives to point of voting for someone else, anyone else. Be aware that there is a high likelyhood that McCain will lose a general election bid.
Should Hillary win, I believe, in the military, there will be a repeat of what happened in 1992/1993. I know a high ranking officer who was an Airborne Ranger who retired in 1993 rather than serve under Bill Clinton. His experience and talent was such that the Army bribed him by offering to promote him immediately to general officer status. He turned them down. He told me that a number of officers with his experience also resigned. Just when we need them most, that experienced officer corps may very well resign rather than endure serving under another military hating Clinton. One was quite more than enough.
And how long do you think the left wing lovefest with McCain will last? Do you believe that there are not Keating Five editorials are already written and waiting to be published in the NYT, the LA Times and Prairie Pravda just as soon the gavel comes down on the McCain nomination? The left wing is giddy at the prospect of having John McCain as the Republican nominee.
Actions have consequences.
The Law of Unintended Consequences is in full force with the support of John McCain.

The McCainocrats THINK Johnny is the most likely to win against Bilarobama. Methinks not! Hunter, Tancredo and Thompson have chickened out but Gov. H is still believing in miracles. So do I!

Gramma - I agree that to the McCainiacs thinking. The problem is that the McCain/Obama match up is the one guaranteed to get them back in the White House but they refuse to see it.

The thought of a McCain nomination scares the daylights out of me...

Lady Logician: McCain/Obama or McCain/ClintonDuo....either way we end up with a Democrat. Come to think of it, if McCain could squeeze out a win, we would still end up with a Democrat. Uff Da!
