Some prominent conservatives who bashed John McCain before he became the nominee for president for the Republican Party have now embraced him.

According to Nation magazine contributor Rick Perlstein, some of the GOP’s hypocrisy on McCain is indicative that what represents true conservatism these days is more of attitude, an affect, than a true philosophy.

Perlstein is a senior fellow at the Campaign For America’s Future and the author of Before the Storm: Barry Goldwater and the Unmaking of the American Consensus, his article on John McCain is called “All Aboard the McCain Express."

Perlstein’s new book about Richard Nixon, Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America, will be published next month.
