What does it mean to be a conservative?

Governor Schwarzenegger is a hawk, is fiscally responsible, and is both pro-choice and against the FMA. He is a "moderate" conservative.

President Bush is a hawk, is fiscally loose, and is pro-life and in favor of the FMA. He is a "strong" conservative.

John McCain is a hawk, is fiscally responsible, and is pro-life but against the FMA. He is a "moderate" conservative.

Patrick Buchanan was against the Iraq War, is fiscally responsible, and is both pro-life and against the FMA. He is a "strong" conservative.

Anyone care to draw a conclusion from this other than the idea that social issues are the only way to judge the extent of one's conservativism?
