Will you embrace Rudy Giuliani when he is the exact same thing as Hillary on all of the above listed issues?
In such a case, if Rudy were to win it would redefine "conservatism" and the republican party.
In either case socialism always fails. Better that it fail under an out-of-the-closet liberal, that for it to happen under a republican who claims to be conservative.
The MSM would exploit that failure as a result of a "conservative republican" President.
