I've had political conversations recently with a few out-of-state friends who are on the other side of the fence. One said that Obama is "too mysterious" and possibly a "Muslim threat," that Michelle is a trophy wife (and that Cindy McCain isn't), that the way Shrub has run our country into the ground and made it an international joke is okay, and that McCain represents a "stable, sensible choice." Another quoted Bible verses about prophecies.
We may agree on other issues, but on politics we should simply agree to politely disagree. If we are this far apart on political candidates, nothing either of us says is likely to convert the other.
