Why I switched
5 May, 2008
This post on Talking Points Memo sums up a lot of the reasons why I switched my support from Clinton to Obama. I truly feel you can tell a lot about how someone will run the White House by how they run their campaign.
If somehow against all odds she got nominated, I’d vote for her, but I’d do so utterly unconvinced that the quality of her leadership wouldn’t bring about disastrous results no less than the disastrous results that McCain’s wrongheaded policies and own cravenness would bring about. Yes, her policy positions would be much better than McCain’s. But if she’s this divisive, this self-preserving, this craven, I think the results can still be horrible, even with policy positions that are much closer to mine.
