  •  Voting for a black man (none)
    Out of 5 million votes cast in Illinois, Obama got 3.5 million, while Kerry got 2.8 million.  Even assuming that not a single Kerry voter went for Keyes, at least 700,000 Bush voters cast ballots for Obama.
    •  Republicans for Obama (none)
      My parents were two of those voters in Illinois who voted for both Bush and Obama.  And one of my online acquaintances, a white Christian Republican in Oklahoma who is a big Bush supporter (and also a pretty thoughtful guy), said today that he can't wait to vote for Obama for president someday.  When asked why, he gave the following reasons:

      ****
      In no particular order....
       - Very Charasmatic
       - An Excellent Public Speaker
       - His Mother Is From Kansas
       - He Supports "Traditional Marriage"
       - Supports charter schools and private investment in schools...open to vouchers

       It is not because he is a christian because his deffinition of being a christian does not match what I believe.  He believes there are many paths to God. He is not sure there is a Hell.
