Based on last night's Rick Warren/Saddleback interview with Obama and McCain I am feeling like I can vote for McCain. This is a pretty big deal for me... I "like" Obama as a communicator. Liked him since the first time I saw him without a tie on Oprah. Yeah, that's right... I'm one of those people... who doesn't really care much about the presidential race. How unbelievably embarrassing.
My girls are Obama supporters. But of course. They are 15 and 17 after all... My son's roommate sleeps under an Obama poster and did grassroots stumping for him in Houston. Are there any young republicans? Well, I was.
I believe in conservative intepretation of the constitution, in a free market and in personal responsibility and logical consequences.
That makes me a Republican, right?
But lately, I've had more trouble feeling good about my affiliation. I don't believe that Bush made all the right decisions for all the right reasons. Does any President? The older I get the harder I think the job is... and the less difference I have thought it made who you vote for.
Then, let's face it... Obama is just cooler in a sound bite than McCain... but now after investing nearly two hours in research (ok, a little less as I checked back on the Olympics from time to time...) I realized that I did find McCain to be a viable candidate because of his politics, if not his personality.
