Amanda -- My take:  It is important for McCain to remind folks that he was a "foot soldier" in the Reagan Revolution.  You and I have heard it a dozen times, so it's getting old, but the average person watching on CSPAN probably hasn't.

My point is that it's not enough for McCain to say that he was once a "foot soldier" in the Reagan Revolution.  Most conservatives admit McCain was once a good vote.  Their concerns with him began to arise after the Keating Five scandal ...
