ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE....Just got back from lunch with a conservative friend of mine that I hadn't seen for a couple of months. My guess is that he's never voted for a Democratic president in his life. Today, though, he dropped off his absentee ballot with the box marked for Barack Obama.
The final straw? Sarah Palin. "Can you imagine her actually becoming president?" he asked. I'll bet he's not the only one wondering.
