The Company We Keep

There is an old saying that goes something like "They will know us by the company we keep." What do Rudy Guliani, Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Pataki, and Christopher Shays have in common?

1. They are all considered Liberal Republicans by most in the party.
2. They are all Pro-Choice.
3. They all endorsed John McCain for President.

John McCain is making his way around the country with these and other politicians. These are all good public servants, but they are not the base or epitome of the Republican Party. Do we really want to nominate someone who who will undoubtably nominate these type of Republicans to important cabinet positions? I hope this makes you think.

though, you have to wonder that if jm gets the nomination, has the base changed? are moderate to liberal republicans starting to be the norm? just a thought. i'm not even sure what i think about it, but it does seem like something to think about.

Maybe, but the point is still well taken. If JM gets the endorsement of liberal Republicans, that is obviously what his leaning is. If you are more conservative, take that into account when deciding who to vote for.

I thought the answer was that they were all men...

Yes, but our conservative women are not in the running this time. :-(
