Republicans, Not Voting For But Against

A co-worker (Democrat, loves Clinton) came into our department yesterday to hassle those of us who were Republicans. It seems that one of the partners (Republican, friend of Boozman) had voted for Obama. I think she imagined that the partner had an epiphany and had turned Democrat. Poor thing, what she didn't realize was that a number of Republicans had voted for Obama because they didn't want Senator Clinton to get the nomination. I wonder what percent of Republicans did vote for Obama just to vote againt Clinton. Hopefully Obama realizes what's happening and not expect those votes if he gets the nomination.

I considered doing that also when I went to vote. Told my wife was thinking about voting for Obama for the same reason you mentioned.

Ended up voting for Romney.
