ABC News’ Sonya Crawford reported over the weekend on how hard it was for conservatives to find a candidate for 2008:

And as conservatives consider their presidential hopefuls, they’re concerned. None of their frontrunners — former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney — are true, purebred conservatives.

The problem is even greater for Christian conservatives who look at polls and see the men who most closely champion their values – Sen. Brownback and Gov. Huckabee – with 1% support nationwide.

Crawford concludes, “With President Bush, conservatives, more or less, knew who they were getting. This time around, they may have to settle for the man who can win.”

A religious war within the GOP is on the horizon where Christian conservative activists begin pounding the table with more and more passion insisting that Jesus wouldn’t support someone like McCain/Giuliani/Romney and where Jesus’ public identity will once again be defined by divisive politics and culture war policies that he never chose.
