Please Vote! …for Barack Obama

Let me pref­ace by urg­ing you to go out and vote tomor­row, regard­less of who you sup­port. Unless you’re one of Huck­’s Army, then please stay home. If you’re a devout Ron Paul sup­port­er, do go, just to enter­tain the MittCains. Our entire fam­i­ly (me, wife, five-year-old, and 20-month-old) will be going to cau­cus here in Kansas.

That said. Won’t you con­sid­er cau­cus-vot­ing for Barack Oba­ma? That’s who we’ll be going to sup­port. I can’t speak for my wife, but I’m going in order to vote against Bil­lary as much as to sup­port Oba­ma. Here’s why, in a nut­shell. I think McCain will beat her in the gen­er­al elec­tion. I dis­like her brand of any­thing-to-win pol­i­tics (though I don’t real­ly believe Oba­ma is above that, the tac­tics Clin­ton has pulled out in NH and SC, and FL and MI make me think of her as Rove-like). I think the nation will not wel­come her as Pres­i­dent, I think we will remain divid­ed, blue vs. red. And I’m tired of all of those things.

Thank you for your time.

P.S., I got the “Vote” thing here.
