Mike - a bigger problem is the re[ublicrat tendency to reward those "who's time it is". It was Bob Dole's turn in 1996 after he had tried before. McCain's turn in 2008 after he put in his tiume, then this time Rombama's turn. And now the republicrats have thrown out their biggest, natural constituency, evangelical Christians under the bus by nominating a satan worshipping cult heathen. I held my nose and voted for Dole in 96. I held my nose with both hands in 08 and voted for McCain. But the nose holding is over! A satan worshipper will never get my vote!
