That "most conservatives are on-board -- or, at least -- it seems that the vocal criticism of him has subsided" gives me great concern. Are they on-board? Or did they just give up and check out? Even former Attorney General Ed Meese, appearing on the Hannity show couldn't bring himself to say more than -- paraphrasing -- there are a lot of issues we conservatives disagree with McCain but he's better than Obama or Hillary.
And that's pretty much as excited about a "President McCain" as conservative leaders seem to be getting right now. Doesn't exactly translate to a bumper sticker.
And it certainly doesn't motivate activists, co-workers or spouses to put their relationships to the test with some in-house politicking among friends.
On that front, McCain has a long way to go. On a positive note, he seems to know he has work ahead.
In the meantime, look for "Conservative in Exile" bumper stickers to show up soon.
