Is McCain the "Clear Choice of Conservatives?"……No

After his win last night in the Florida Republican Presidential Primary Senator John McCain announced:

“It shows one thing. I’m the conservative leader who can unite the party.”

Is Senator McCain the clear choice of conservatives?

No.

Conservatives chose Governor Mitt Romney.

It looks like the non-Republicans are still helping Senator McCain.
From yesterday’s Florida Republican primary:

Suitably Flip and Michelle Malkin have more on the closed-open Florida primary.

Michelle Malkin also lists all of the concerns conservatives have with Senator McCain.

UPDATE: Bryan Preston offers advice to conservatives.

More… Michael Graham adds:

Huckabee will stay in and deny Romney a one-on-one contest for GOP voters that Captain Amnesty would almost certainly lose. The result: More wins for “He Who Must Not Be Named,” and fewer wins for Romney—regardless of delegate count…

In November, we’ll be sending out our most liberal, least trustworthy candidate vs. to take on Hillary Clinton—perhaps not more liberal than Barack Obama, but certainly far less trustworthy.

And the worst part for the Right is that McCain will have won the nomination while ignoring, insulting and, as of this weekend, shamelessly lying about conservatives and conservatism.

UPDATE 2: HotAir has the quote of the night from former Republican National Chairman Senator Mel Martinez.

UPDATE 3: Dee still has hope.
