If Senator McCain wins, what are the prospects for conservatism to blossom in Washington, D.C.? 1. John McCain will be calling the policy shots, not Sarah Palin. 2. The Democrats will likely have about a 10 seat majority in the Senate. 3. The Democrats will likely have about a 50 seat majority in the House. So how will a McCain victory result in conservatism being advanced in Washington, D.C. for the next four years? Would it not be more likely that liberalism will advance strongly during a McCain presidency for the next four years?
