WASHINGTON (AP) - John McCain is a "true conservative," President Bush says, although the likely Republican presidential nominee may have to work harder to convince other conservatives that he is one of their own.The man who has done more to marginalize conservatism as a movement within the Republican party as anyone in my lifetime says McCain is a "true conservative". I feel better already.
McCain "is very strong on national defense," Bush said in an interview taped for airing on "Fox News Sunday." "He is tough fiscally. He believes the tax cuts ought to be permanent. He is pro-life. His principles are sound and solid as far as I'm concerned."
