7. Yes, my husband of all people.
He is a registered Democrat but only because he wanted to caucus for Edwards. He's actually a Republican.

He liked Edwards. He hates Obama. The fact that both candidates support similiar ideas for America doesn't matter to him. He votes for the person he can relate to.

Getting through this election, with my marriage intact, might prove to be one of the most difficult things I have ever had to go through! I'm not one to keep my mouth shut and having to do so in my own home is very frustrating!

Right now I'm just trying to convince him to vote for Bob Barr because he is very much against the bail out. At least that won't be a vote for McCain and at this point that is all I can hope from him.
