I've been curious lately about liberal/democrat support of Barack Obama. I'll start off by saying this is not a Obama bash-fest on my part, but trying to understand. 1. He's against gay marriage. (He's said marriage is a man and a woman - rhetoric that makes most democrats squirm.) 2. He voted for immunity for companies that wiretapped for the Bush administration. 3. He's for expanded use of drug courts - still keeping drugs illegal at all levels. I mean there's more, but if you are a Barack supporter, is it more "he's better than McCain" or what? How do you reconcile some of his right-leaning thoughts? Just curious.
