It is not often we (my husband and I) find ourselves hearing real logic and human concern from a conservative  these days.  Though we know you all are out there, few examples seem to make it to the political shows or within sight of the media.  We also found ourselves listening intently to your, and the young musician’s feelings and thoughts on faith.  As religious skeptics who believe in a higher power (yet reject organized religion) we are often appalled by our country’s religious right.  But we understood and empathized with both your views.   It was a great moment – we found ourselves, as Democrats in our early 40’s,  having  common beliefs with a conservative and a Rapper.  We are desperately hoping to have more of these moments in the near future. 

We will be voting for Senator Obama.
