"If you are looking at substance rather than if there is an R or a D after his name ... then Hillary is going to be our girl, because she's more conservative than he is." —Ann Coulter on Sen. John McCain on Hannity and Colmes
"I will seek the counsel of my fellow conservatives. If I am convinced my judgment is in error, I will correct it. And if I stand by my position ... I hope you will not lose sight of the far more numerous occasions when we are in accord." —Sen. John McCain in a Feb. speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference
"... The way to win a debate with John McCain is not by nominating someone who agreed with him on voting for the war in Iraq; who agreed with him by voting to give George Bush the benefit of the doubt on Iran; who agrees with him in embracing the Bush-Cheney policy of not talking to leaders we don't like and who actually differed with him by arguing for exceptions for torture before changing positions when the politics of the moment changed." —Sen. Barack Obama on the similarities between John McCain and Hillary Clinton in a January speech in Denver, Colo.
