2016 election

I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

"Right-wing Support for Barack Obama Increasingly Conspicuous and Voluble"

I was beginning to think I was the only writer in the blogosphere who had noticed how the likes of NY Times columnist David Brooks and other leading conservative pundits were promoting Barrack Obama with gushing endorsements in their respective venues. To read my post on this topic on Dec. 18, go here.

Thanks to an article last Friday by Salon’s Joe Conason titled Why Conservatives Love Barrack Obama, I’ve discovered that Obama has even more support than I realized from Republicans on the right.

Conason writes:

Dec. 21, 2007 In the weeks since Karl Rove offered his unsolicited advice on how to defeat Hillary Clinton in the pages of the Financial Times, right-wing expressions of support for Barack Obama have become increasingly conspicuous and voluble. Although often couched in high-flown moral terms that accept the Illinois senator's definition of himself as a fresh and unsullied figure, his Republican endorsers cannot quite conceal their underlying animus.

They hate Hillary Clinton and they think he just might be able to beat her.
