Super Tuesday - Fat Tuesday for McCain

So my thoughts on McCain taking a commanding lead in the Republican Primaries of Super Tuesday? Well, I'm a bit ambivalent on McCain. I vote for him, but in Utah, 90 percent voted for Romney, so I basically tossed my vote out into the wind. I think I'd have voted for Romney if he'd had any chance of beating Clinton or Obama. He just couldn't make himself well-known enough, and I think in large measure it was due to the negative campaign commercials he ran, instead of running strong ads that showed his strengths and his passion. He hasn't ever infused the public with any fire--there's nothing that he's laid out a strategy to accomplish. I feel bad for the guy, really. I think he's a good man. What I don't think is good is the number of Mormon bashers that are still out there. What a bunch of bigots.
Anyway, once this primary season settles down and McCain is firmly the Republican candidate, conservatives must unite behind him to stop whichever of the Democrats is nominated. Look at this for example. At American Conservative Union, McCain has a lifetime 82 rating, while Clinton's lifetime rating is 12, and Obama's is 8. That should be enough to scare you.
