Arizona senator John McCain got high praise today from one of the nation's top conservatives.
Former House speaker Newt Gingrich told a crowd of 800 people at the Arizona Biltmore that conservatives should rally around John McCain.
"If your choice is Senator Obama or Senator McCain or your choice is Senator Clinton or Senator McCain, I don't think any rational person who's conservative can do anything except try to help Senator McCain because the alternative is a nightmare," he said to applauds.
Gingrich said Obama has yet to express exactly what he stands for. He added conservatives will disagree with McCain about 20 percent of the time, but that he is still the best candidate for president.
