    I'm not 100 percent sure, but I believe a late uncle of mine ended up going from being a Nader voter in 2000 to a McCain supporter in 2008. You probably couldn't say that about that many people in this country, if it's true.

    "The election of Mitt Romney and a supporting congress this November would be a...disaster for America. Think of the trainwreck that has been the Conservative government in Britain since 2010. And square it."--Brad DeLong

      Remember, before the 2008 election McCain was seen as a maverick, and he championed some legislation Democrats liked. McCain-Feingold, or McCain-Kennedy. It wasn't til he ran in the Republican primary nationally that he veered right. Plus, being an earnest war hero certainly didn't hurt his case.
