Winning: The most important attribute for a candidate!

Hugh Hewitt quotes Michael Barone discussing the changing GOP electorate. Hugh states that "What I think we can agree is that a pro-choice tilt doesn't disqualify a GOP candidate in the primaries if he is strong on the GWOT, if his choices for judges can be trusted, and if he has been loyal to the president and the party." While all of Hugh's post rings true I think important to remember the most important attribute for a candidate to possess: the ability to win. I know Hugh is speaking specifically about primary elections where principle carries more weight than in a general election, however, I think an in-ability to win should always trump principle.

Never forget one of Hugh's key commandments: The purpose is to win elections.

Thanks Hugh Hewitt for this and so many good post.
