A right-wing co-worker asked me who I would vote for in the Democratic primary. I said, "Probably, Barak Obama."
He asked, "Why, because of charisma?"
I said, "I don't give a crap about charisma. I'm not going to have a beer with the guy. I'd vote for him because he was against the Iraq war from the beginning, when it was very unpopular to be against Bush's invasion. AND, HE WAS CORRECT!"
I found it very telling that my right-wing co-worker had no response to this obvious assertion.
Of course, even though he cannot argue with the fact, he will never vote for the guy who was, and is, correct. He will stick with the guys who have been wrong all along.
