The catagory of social conservative is pretty broad. I'm a social conservative. It concerned me that Coors Brewing Company has made some off the wall decisions in regards to their business dealings with the "gay community", but frankly, its none of my business. I believe many Christian conservatives had serious reservations with Pete Coors. OTOH. Coors ran on a pro-military/anti-terror, tax reform, pro-life, pro-family, anti-gay marriage agenda. He isn't a professional politician and at times that was painfully obvious during the campaign. Coors was a weak candidate, running against another weak candidate, Ken Salazar. Even though Salazar is more of a moderate Democrat and not a flaming liberal, I'd rather have Coors in the Senate. Actually I voted for Bob Schaffer in the primary and thought he had a shot at beating Salazar.
Time to move on.

I agree that Coors is preferrable to Salazar. I agree that Christian conservatives should have looked at the big picture and judged him by what he promised to do in the Senate instead of his company's wacko policies. And I agree that Salazar was a weak candidate, which makes his victory that much more bitter.
I personally liked Coors, but I thought he was terrible in the Meet the Press debate. Salazar, too, was awful in the debate but didn't seem to be as bad as Coors to me. Its too bad, as I think Coors would have made a good Senator.
