Which is why in some ways I find myself also thinking that this country needs another revolution, a shake up of the political parties as well.
That being said, while I'm not "for McCain" per se', I am definitely much more against Obama.
Even before your post, I knew I wasn't alone in being weary of being forced to choose from among the lesser of two evils...
