Conservative for Obama

A remarkable, short column by Wick Allison, a former Editor of The National Review and current Editor in Chief of D Magazine, where this piece appears.

This sentence, especially, stood out:

It gives me comfort just to think that after eight years of George W. Bush we will have a president who has actually read the Federalist Papers.

Do read the comments and reactions; it’s a very interesting set of opinions, all pretty articulate.

  1. Thanks for this, Helen.
    It’s making me think that the real divide in our country is less Republican vs. Democrat than “Thoughtful” versus “Thoughtless”.

  2. Fabulous column! I copied it and forwarded it widely. It’s what I would say if I could talk to conservatives!
