    But it's still voters who decide. The conservative base wasn't strong enough or large enough to elect a hardliner this time around.

      1. Crossover voters. McCain did not win a single closed primary.
      1. More conservative candidates. Among pseudo-moderates, it was Romney and McCain. On the further right, there was Huckabee, Thompson, Alan Keyes (whoo boy!), Ron Paul (Reloveution!), Tancredo, and Brownback.

      I do not consider Guiliani to have run a campaign.

        the conservatives split their votes 4-5 ways.

        but the general election is the ultimate crossover primary.

        if the Rs nominate someone too wacko to get crossover votes [cough-Palin-cough], then Obama will sail into another four years.

        Politics is like driving. To go backward, put it in R. To go forward, put it in D.

      both end with an old guy begging "tell me I'm a good man"
