Ralph Reed on McCain

ralph.jpgCBN's David Brody interviewed Christian Coalition leader and fallen GOP angel Ralph Reed on his thoughts of John McCain. Reed outlined what McCain needs to do to win over his party's base. Reed: "First, he should choose a running mate with strong conservative credentials, both on social issues and economic issues. Then he should adopt a conservative platform at the convention, and run a general election campaign that sounds conservative themes on taxes, terrorism, and values. If he does those things, he should be able to unite the party. If not, it will be difficult to rally the grassroots and win a highly competitive, close race in November." Thus, I'd infer that Reed isn't eager to jump on the Huckabandwagon anytime soon. In fact, it looks like he is more of a Romney 2012 kind of guy. The Washington Times has it that shortly after Romney's CPAC resignation, he met with a group of GOP giants to tell them he'd be soldiering on for the cause.
