Encouraging Trends for Moderate Politics

In addition to the fact that relatively moderate Senator McCain won the GOP vote in Florida WITHOUT the help of independents, we have this report about President Carter Leads Moderate Baptist Meeting

Weary of Southern Baptists’ dominance in American Protestantism, a new push is starting by other Baptist groups aimed at working on social justice issues, and showing their religious tradition is broader than the conservative SBC. Former President Jimmy Carter is leading the effort.

    Fall 2004 Senator McCain supported the interests of the Conservative Index – The John Birch Society 90 percent in Fall 2004.

    2007 In 2007 The Club for Growth gave Senator McCain a rating of 100.

    That”s not the kind of approval a moderate gets.

    McCain most capable of this batch of hopefuls

    For all of McCain’s alleged faults, he holds an American Conservative Union lifetime rating of 82.3. True, that’s the lowest among the leading GOP candidates. But,’s consolidated polls of various head-to-head races show that McCain is the only Republican candidate who is, at this moment, ahead of the Democratic front-runners, Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois. Are die-hard conservatives so dead set against a slightly less than pure conservative president that they would prefer either Clinton or Obama (with American Conservative Union ratings of 9 and 8, respectively) in the White House?

    McCain not a moderate but a conservative.

    I used the words “relatively moderate” on purpose. My point was that the GOP is seriously considering supporting someone who champions election reform, immigration compromise, Environmental protection, real fiscal restraint.

    To me this is progress towards a more centrist government leadership.
