Obama is a conservative’s candidate in many ways; his sunny energy, non-victimological approach, having lifted himself up by his own bootstraps.  I think the McCain camp could get very lonely as the election approaches.  This has the potential to be a landslide election.  I think it could rival Reagan’s 49-stste sweep in 1984.  In the future, we will be speaking of ‘Obama Republicans’ in the way we now speak of ‘Reagan Democrats’.
