If I Were An Obama Supporter.....

Come November, I intend to cast my vote for John McCain. Like many other conservatives, I'm not terribly happy about having to vote for McCain but I really have no other legitimate choice. But if I were supporting Barack Obama, I would be increasingly worried about my candidate.

Given his recent track record of major flips on a variety of issues, Senator Obama is quickly making John Kerry look like a principled politician. It is becoming clearer by the day that the Senator is willing to do and say anything in order to get elected. It's not hard to imagine that if Obama wins the election his first two years in office will be marked by a hard tack to the left.

Senator Obama has been able to clinch the Democratic nomination by preaching an ambiguous message of hope and change without delving into much in the way of policy specifics. But as this campaign move into the more serious season he's going to have to make it clear what he stands for. Otherwise the "Change We Can Believe In" will be his platform that alters direction based on which way the political winds are blowing.
