One of the reasons I thought John McCain should have attended CPAC was because he would have received a warm welcome.  I mean, I don't agree with Rudy Giuliani on a lot of social issues, but I enjoyed his talk (and as I recall, he received a standing ovation).  In short, conservatives are generally polite to speakers.

Well, yesterday, when Hillary was booed at the Take Back America Conference, some of the differences between conservatives and liberals were made clear.

And the truth is that, in general, conservatives welcome diversity of opinion, while liberals are intolerant of different views.  Conservatives will politely listen to speakers they disagree with, while liberals boo down Democrats who stray from liberal orthodoxy. 

How did they get the reputation for being so open-minded???
