John McCain does not speak for conservatives, he speaks at them. We have long since stopped listening. Hence, his statement to AP that he is the "candidate who can unite the party" is the sort of self-deluded fantasy that this party can do without.
You may have won the delegates, but you did not capture a "unifying" amount of the vote. There's still a long battle ahead, and you've chosen to fight your base. What a waste of campaign breath.
On to February 5. Have your game on, McCain. You'll need it.
