The poor Catholics. They just will not know what to do. Their choices are gonna be limited. Consider:

1. Obama. White Catholics will vote Democrat 85% of the time. Sometimes they will vote for a black candidate but only for "legislative" positions like Congressman, Senator or judge. NEVER for "executive" positions such as Mayor, Govornor or President. They just cannot bring themselves to vote for such a thing.

2, McCain. Yes the one who pals around with people that refer to Catholics as "Satan Worshippers" and other assorted scum. Somehow McCain gets away with saying "I denounce Hagee's bigotry but he is still a good friend". Works for McCain- didn't so well for Obama and Rev Wright.

So will the white Catholics vote for Obama, vote for McCain or not vote at all??
