Obama has gone centrist, which I realize he had to do to reach out and get votes. (And Bill Clinton did the same which got him elected. So I hope it works for Barak.) But as much as I want Change and Hope and an end to the madness and (perceived - since I'm not a lawyer) illegallity that has become our government's actions over the past 8 years, I just worry that Obama's not going to undo the excesses of BushCo and their extensions of presidential privilege/authority.
So, since I live in Maryland, and I feel it's a pretty decent bet that Maryland is going for Obama, I'm voting for McKinney/Clemente of the Green Party.
1. I want third-party representation in future elections, and my one vote helps toward that.
2. The Green Party supports the idea of pursuing charges against Bush/Cheney.
Steny's not getting my vote either, since he let the telecom immunity go through. (And I've supported Steny a long time.)
So we'll see. Good luck, Senator Obama. I certainly hope you win over McCain. But as my friends and I've discussed, I have to vote my conscience.
(And to think this is my first actual personal lj-post.)
