An African-American friend of mine here in Ohio, who he and I always "argue" politics" was going to vote for Obama.

He called me minutes ago to tell me he couldn't do it. I had changed his mind and he couldn't bring himself to vote for Obama.

Good for you!

I have a gut feeling there are going to be a lot of changed minds before this day is through.

Good for you.

And tell your friend "thanks for putting the country first". Also, let him/her know that there is PLENTY of room in the GOP for real patriots who care about the country.

Yes. What an emotional decision for him. It could have been a joy for all of us if the first serious black candidate were someone that would honor our history and our future as free people.

“He called me minutes ago to tell me he couldn’t do it. I had changed his mind and he couldn’t bring himself to vote for Obama.”

Whatever happens, thank him for me.
Tell him he did the right thing. I know it was not easy.

That’s great! But did he cast a vote for McCain? That would be even better.
