"Because he has opposed President Bush and other conservatives.."

I guess that is what living at the taint of neocon power does to your outlook on life. Jim

But for you, or anyone else, to interpret that as an endorsement of Obambi seriously misses the mark!
Will is one of the long time voices of the Republican Party, the counterbalance to the NeoCon prattle of folks like Kristol and Krauthammer. The difference between Will and Krauthammer, as an example is that Will doesn't feel the need to constantly be a Bush revisionist and apologist.

More Republicans now follow the philosophy that Will espouses than that of Kristol, Krauthammer, Bush or McCain.

That should work well with the Georgia v Russia conflict.

This is why nobody should take you any more seriously than they take their neighbor's dog. Bush is the conservative, and Will is the maverick.

Well I thought I'd be less confused after your answer, but I'm not.

Would you agree that actions speak louder than words? If so, which of Bush's actions - particularly actions on major issues - would you classify as "conservative"? Because it sounded like you were pairing him with conservatives ("he has opposed President Bush and other conservatives").

Is an unpredictable maverick candidate who opposes conservatives really better than a steady, predictable candidate who opposes conservatives?

The New McCain Look

Is this the new McCain look? From Columbus today. I can't determine if it is smug or if he just sharted.

And about that mini-stroke question of earlier.
