To add to what Stephen has just said, there are a lot of disappointed 
Republicans and Conservatives who see McCain as a bad compromise 
candidate.  They vote for him because the alternative is too horrible 
to imagine.

Personally, I don't think the Republican party had a very good field 
this year.  I'm just hoping that McCain will pull through and someone 
better will come in later to take over.  Palin, Jindal, etc.
