To add to what Stephen has just said, there are a lot of disappointed
Republicans and Conservatives who see McCain as a bad compromise

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.
