US Prez 2008

I just finished reading an article about women voters, and though I agreed with many of the premises, it also seemed to ring untrue in other ways. (I'll post a link later; don't want to influence your voting.)

So, a poll! The results are locked, so you can be honest with your answers without worrying about becoming a social outcast for your choice. I'll post anonymous results early in the week.
Poll #1205282 Presidential voting 2008

Who did you support during the Presidential primary?

Clinton
11(15.9%)
Obama
48(69.6%)
Other Democratic candidate
8(11.6%)
McCain
0(0.0%)
Other Republican candidate
2(2.9%)
Third-party candidate
0(0.0%)

Who will you support for Prez in November?

Obama
68(97.1%)
McCain
1(1.4%)
Third-party candidate
1(1.4%)
Write-in candidate
0(0.0%)

If you plan to vote third-party or write-in, who will it be?


Thanks!
Chris

You didn't give me the option of 'None of the Above'.

But, he did
Third-party option: write in "None of the above."

I'm presuming you want only women to answer this, since you spoke of women voters?

Nope, that's just what got me started thinking about this.

I frankly got pretty disgusted by Hillary's campaign, and even wrote to tell them so. As a white woman of a certain age, I was "supposed" to be a Hillary supporter, but I wasn't. And I resent the implications that if I didn't support Hillary, I was being unfaithful to my gender, or whatever. I hate the lumping of (white) women voters as a block as I do lumping any other grouping of people into a homogeneous whole.

I agree. Plus,she got so whiny and weepy and entitlement-minded. She may think she did a lot for women in politics, but I think she set us back.

I really wanted to like Hillary. Really. But she didn't come across as "genuine", and she began to sound like politics as usual.

Hahahaha! Actually, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that many of those who are voting Democratic this year are normally Republicans. But after eight years of NeoCon hell, they're "voting for change." One can hope!

I know a conservative Republican who said to me about four months ago, "I hope Obama defeats Clinton."
"Why?" I asked, actually curious.
"Because," he said. "Clinton can't beat McCain. Obama can."

Turns out, he's against McCain's "Bomb Iran" stance. So yes, he's jumping the fence.

This time I support Obama, not as the "at least it's not ..." choice, but because he's my first choice out of anyone I could think of as a candidate.
