Sullivan on Huckabee's Win

Kansas' Christianists do not seem aware that the race is over. This is not the Republican party that falls in line. It's a Republican party into very discreet factions.
No, Andrew. This is the Republican party who is seeing a contest about what we want our future to be. Neither of these candidates is ideal, but there are considerable differences between the two and the race is not "over" even if the delegate count says it is. There are important messages to be sent still, regardless if McCain has a lock or not. Our vote is the only way we can truly make that known, and so we will continue to do so.

But, at least Sullivan has stopped even trying to pretend to be a conservative. His faux-conservative shell cracked a long time ago, so it shouldn't be a surprise that he has no clue what is going on in the Republican party. After all, he still thinks McCain is the candidate of positive change for the party, the "future" even. I can only pray that McCain will be the end of certain elements within the conservative camp.

I agree with Ward 100%. Huckabee ensures that Conservatives continue to have a plate at the party, and a forum for their ideas before McCain lurches toward the Center for his general election run (as every candidate should, this is not a criticism of McCain, per se, although I have many). Without at least the appearance of an open dialogue, Conservatives will feel rejected from the GOP and it is much more likely they will go third party in which case McCain has essentially NO chance to win.

And I say this as a person seriously considering going third-party in November.
