Bill Moyers Journal: John McCain and the Downfall of Conservatism [VIDEO]

Bill Moyers talks to Matt Welch, editor in chief of Reason Magazine, and Mickey Edwards about what a John McCain presidency might mean for this country, and John McCain's acceptance of Hagee's endorsement. Edwards' views are particularly telling since he knows McCain personally and is a serious conservative. He believes the GOP became the monster it is today under Gingrich in the 90s, when the preoccupation became beating Democrats and nothing else. As usual with most of Moyers' material, it's a fascinating discussion. Check out the video to your right for more.
