I Really Want to Like John McCain|
Actually, even some of the un-moderate conservatives have ditched McCain and are planning on voting for Obama. Ken Adelman
has switched allegiances, and a lot of people are very surprised by this. He was very pro-Iraq War back when, and served in the Reagan White House for 7 years. It's kind of interesting watching which people have jumped ship, which people are holding fast, and who's just not talking about it anymore - I notice George Will's last couple of columns have been very much not about the election, at least not obviously about it, anyway.

I do think a lot of people just feel it's over and time to move on. Also, anyone who is "conservative" in the old sense - as opposed to the hates-gays-and-abortion-loves-guns sense - is pretty appalled at the selection of such an obviously unqualified VP nominee. Clearly not a conservative thing to do. But I still think if he'd gone with a moderate running mate, the right wing would have voted for him, if only while holding their collective nose. And the moderates and independents would have taken him a lot more seriously.
