I am not so sure the race will go to Obama...I sure want it to, but we are dealing with a county that allowed a lovely women, Katherine Harris, to create a debacle of a presidential election. They then supported Bush to take the presidency. Bush won the presidency a second time. In all reality I can't imagine how that happened! We have an electorate who is willing to vote, but is not always capable of rational thought. - I sound so snotty - sorry. I just don't get the voters. If everyone who could, voted, things may be different. Where I live in Shasta County California - people are ecstatic about Sarah Palin. They think she will be able to fix a broken Washington. A recent poll in the newspaper - the kind with people's pictures and a couple of sentences touted by them, showed most were for her and mainly because of her PRO-LIFE - ANTI Abortion stand - and a few of these were young men. This area is very "Christian", which many voters feel is synonymous with always voting Republican. I am going to have to actually work for Obama's campaign in order to live with myself! I want to be hopeful. It is so reassuring to see Obama people who are also aligned with being Christians. I would love to see some positive statements on why Christians are for Obama. That might help me here. I am not Christian, though I have a spiritual path. And I believe in freedom of religion.
