Conservative for Obama

Posted by – September 24, 2008

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.

    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. VivaZoya says:

    This was brilliant. I couldn’t have said it better. Damnit.
    DivaD, I agree. It really is.

  3. traceldel says:

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

  4. tinasim02 says:

    It’s a good column, and reading the comments, I echo what DivaD said as well.

    Yeah. I’ve been composing my “Dear John (McCain)” letter in my head, but Mr. Alison beat me to it.
