PHOENIX RISING:John McCain, with Joe Lieberman (left), basks in victory at home in Phoenix yesterday.
February 7, 2008 -- Republican presidential front-runner John McCain yesterday urged his right-wing critics to "calm down" as he tried to persuade wary conservative activists to back his candidacy.
"I do hope that at some point we would just calm down a little bit and see if there are areas that we can agree on for the good of the party and for the good of the country," said McCain, referring to radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, following his coast-to-coast Super Tuesday victories.
