I Am in Good Company…

While not always for the same reasons, these prominent republicans have chosen to support Barack Obama. Like myself, these republicans have (for whatever reasons) decided to align themselves with the respectful tone of Barack Obama’s campaign. Perhaps it is because he shows a depth of intellect missing from the McCain/Palin ticket, or maybe it is the fact that he brings a fresh perspective to a nation that must find a new path, it is also possible it is because Obama has more clearly defined his challenges for this nation and how we can all work together towards a brighter future. Whether it be for only one of these reasons, or all of them, Barack Obama has clearly garnered more bi-partisan support than his counterpart – and that is a reason alone to vote for Obama!
