  •  How I got myself into that embarrassing (0+ / 0-)

    position:

    I made the decision to back the candidate whose policy positions best reflected my own, and to ignore personality as much as humanly possible. I was angry at Clinton for her war votes, which I felt were obvious chess moves made with an eye towards 2008 and showed callous disregard of her constituents' wishes (of whom I was one). I found Obama purposefully vague on policy and distrusted the magical charisma that my younger friends were enraptured by (and I'm still not starry-eyed about him).

    I saw Edwards speak in person fairly early on, and there was no magic there either, but he was saying what I wanted to hear. Nothing I'm proud of, but I did learn that character counts.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
