Even George Will Is Worried About McCain

George F. Will, columnist for The Washington Post, is not exactly known as being a raving liberal. In this most recent column, "McCain Loses His Head", Will questions whether Sen. McCain has the temperment to be President:
Conservatives who insist that electing McCain is crucial usually start, and increasingly end, by saying he would make excellent judicial selections. But the more one sees of his impulsive, intensely personal reactions to people and events, the less confidence one has that he would select judges by calm reflection and clear principles, having neither patience nor aptitude for either.

It is arguable that, because of his inexperience, Obama is not ready for the presidency. It is arguable that McCain, because of his boiling moralism and bottomless reservoir of certitudes, is not suited to the presidency. Unreadiness can be corrected, although perhaps at great cost, by experience. Can a dismaying temperament be fixed?

So now, even conservative commentators are realizing the danger of a McCain presidency.
