275. Yep - the GOP have told about 200,000 in Texas to not bother with the GOP primary and vote Obama so
Edited on Tue Feb-26-08 07:34 PM by papau
as to stop Hillary - this fellow is part of a very large crowd - at least as to the primary.

I wonder if the vote for Obama in the general was won by Obama being for school vouchers, or being more deregulation and "civil" rights for corporations (both noted by Obama supporter Hart in his 2006 book)

Or was it the pro coal plants - albeit with the addition of a federally funded "pilot plant to test carbon sequestration" - Obama does love his Illinois coal mine owners

or was it just the general idea that Getting GOP love so as to change the atmosphere in DC means none of that left wing stuff is real and the "GOPer" sees McCain as too progressive compared to Obama?
