    Anyone remember the phrase Clinton Republican? I knew many Democrats who voted for Reagan. I knew many Republicans who voted for Clinton. I don't know many Republicans who voted for Obama.

    Yes, I realize this is anecdotal. I have a strong sense that few Republicans voted for Obama. Those who voted for Obama were likely either independents or had already left the Republican Party. Some of them likely felt that the party left them.

    I can accept the transformation that has occurred. I have a harder time making a correlation between Reagan and Obama. Reagan and Clinton is easy. They both were fine orators, and they both were able to appeal to voters who would later go back to their original parties.
