In my continuing series, we turn to the Democrats. Barack Obama, it seems to me, has conducted himself very well in this campaign, which is free of the vitriol of pretty much every one else. Alone of all the Democrats, he is not demonizing conservatives. He is not even demonizing opponents of abortion. In his book, he writes about how he understands and appreciates their points, though he depicts himself as reluctantly “pro-choice” anyway. That book also tells about his conversion to Christianity and his faith in Christ, something that he is open about and is quite sincere about. (Inside sources among Christians on Capitol Hill confirm this.)
I’m not saying I could vote for him. He is weak on both abortion and the war on terrorism and is liberal in his overall political philosophy. Still, if the agenda is “anyone but Hilary,” shouldn’t we root for him in the Democratic primaries?
