McCain has 613 to Romney's 269. This is bad news for Romney, as well as America. Romney could still pull it off I guess, but that is very unlikely.
It will be interesting to see how many of the people that have said they will not vote for McCain will change their tune. I hope none of them do. It is true that McCain will not win without conservatives. What bothers me is how much the conservatives will lose if they support McCain. For the last 12 years the Republican party is slowly but surely moving away from conservatism. Till now they could count on the conservatives complaining about it, but falling back in line by election time. Eventually it will become neccesary for the conservatives to put a foot to these RINO's backside and let them know we will not follow along behind waiting on whatever scraps they decide to dish out to us. The Republican party gained control of Congress because of conservatism. The party lost control of Congress because they moved away from conservatism.
The thought of Clinton or Obama in the White House makes my skin crawl. But the thought of the Republican party becoming the clone to the Democratic party makes my skin crawl twice as bad. For the good of the party and the country, I will not vote for McCain!
