Charles, The election of 2008 was a choice of two disasters and you recognized it as did I. I voted for McCain but said in November of 2008 that obama being elected was probably the best thing that could happen for the conservative movement. McCain would have reached across the aisle and put programs into place that would have been worse than obama's since they were bi-partisan. What a joke, bad legislation is bad legislation. Anyway, I can slightly see your reason for voting for obama, but even you will acknowledge, if only to yourself, that it was for the wrong reason. Would your grandparents vote for a socialist because he was black?
