"I have spent over a year researching every candidate from the beginning. Even though I don't agree with all of Senator Obama's policies, overall he is the only one embracing the core values of the 1964 Republican party, whether intentional or not, along with a bit of JFK thrown in. This former Republican doesn't care who his preacher is, or whose dinner party he attended once upon a time. I'm not voting for his preacher. I'm voting for the person who has demonstrated a wisdom and an intelligence this nation hasn't seen in a leader for a long time," - a commenter on Jake Tapper's always lively blog.
