Why a lifelong Republican wants Obama to win

Frank Schaeffer writes why he supports Obama.

This is a great day for those of us who have been fighting for Senator Obama! I’m a good example of why he’ll win in November. I’m the least typical Obama supporter. And there are many more like me.

I cut my political teeth in the seventies through the early eighties as an organizer in the antiabortion religious right. I’m a fifty-five year old white man who has been a conservative most of my life. I’ve been a Republican activist who campaigned for McCain in 2000. I’m a big fan of the military. My son served in the Marines. If Obama can reach me he can reach anyone.

And it has.
