34. Makes sense to me
My guard was up about Obama for a very long time, because I was worried that he was all smoke and mirrors, and behind that we'd see that he was Just Another Politician. Since then he has proved me wrong, and I truly believe that he has the nation's best interest at heart.

The bottom line is that it's now time for this nation to choose which path it wants to travel in the future: that of darkness, fear, and dirty dealings (in other words, business as usual) with McCain, or the enlightened path, with Obama. And that's not "woo-woo", it's what we talk about every day here on DU, what Democrats stand for: taking care of others--in our own country and around the world--and helping everyone, not just ourselves, to acquire a better, more peaceful, more comfortable, more peaceful lifestyle.

So...have we tipped the balance? Are enough people ready to take that leap? Fingers crossed that we are. If we end up with McCain and business as usual, our country, and indeed this world, won't survive for very much longer.
