At this point I might vote for Donald Duck before I would support another Republican adminstration. If a Republican had emerged as a maverick, that might have been different, but when I see a candidate who calls Nixon's two-bit thug, G Gordon Liddy, a "great American"... The Palin appointment was the nail in the coffin. That said, I think Obama would stand out in any election. But at the same time, I think things had to get this bad before someone like Obama was possible. And were he just another ordinary candidate who happened to be black, then he would have had no chance at all.
