It's a sad state for their party when republicans are going to cross party lines to vote for Obama. Many have realized that this isn't about us against them. This is about the future of this country. If we continue on the present path this nation will look like Rome after it collapsed. To vote for a candidate who holds the values of the present administration is just insane. As one anlalogy put it it's like using a wrench to fix your car only it's the wrong wrench. Are you going to continue to use the wrong wrench for the job? No you switch wrenches and try and get the right one.
As for the 'news' that Obama is behind in the polls, it's not true. Intrade who has correctly picked the last elections puts Obama ahead by a margin of 54 to McCains 46.
