>Bush: McCain a ‘true conservative’

>President Bush referred to Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain a “true conservative” in this New York Times article.

However, the president said, McCain has some “convincing” to do.

“I think that if John’s the nominee, he’s got some convincing to do to convince people that he is a solid conservative,” Mr. Bush told the Fox host, Chris Wallace. “And I’ll be glad to help him if he’s the nominee, because he is a conservative.”

Thoughts? Can President Bush’s remarks help McCain win over skeptical conservatives?
