"The attitude of today's Pavlovian Conservatives toward Sen. McCain is
reminiscent of the disdain that admirers of the late great Robert A. Taft, icon
of American conservatism in his time, had for Dwight Eisenhower and his great
failing: He was not only too popular (everybody liked Ike), but he ideologically
was undependable, maybe even just plain un-ideological, hard as that is for a
certain species of political junkie to imagine - about anyone."
Isn't it time we had a leader that wasn't bound to a canon of ideas?
