ABSTRACT
The article reports that conservatives in the United States are beginning to look at Senator John McCain as a political leader who could help the right. McCain is getting another look from some of the people who fought against him years ago. There are several reasons why Republican establishment types are warming to McCain. First is the loyalty McCain showed toward President George W. Bush in his last election. Second is his stand on the war in Iraq. Third is his hard line on federal spending.
