I primarily vote the party, unless the candiate on the other ticket is clearly better. I have voted for Demmies at the state and local level. My issue with Obama is his politics. At the national level, there has never been a Dem that met that qualification. Just my opinion.

If Obama were a republican, he would NOT get my vote just like if Colin Powell was running for Pres as a Republican, he again would NOT get my vote...

This question is really not answerable. It's like asking what if God and the devil were to change places. You have McCain who really is a moderate, middle of the road politician. I would say with the exception of a few issues, he is about on par with someone like Hillary. Obama, is one of, if not the most liberal senator in American history. There are ideas he plans to push that will test, or even crap upon the constitution of the USA and he does not care. He wants to socialize the US and test everything that is traditional American ideology. You could not flip these two candidates, no matter what. It's not even computable in the greatest of imaginations.

The parties have totally different concepts on how to run the country. If the names were reversed and McCain had a plan to destroy the country, then I wouldn't vote for him... Nobama is a nut case..

You mean if they had each other's political views? McCain was liberal and Obama was conservative? McCain was socialist and far left leaning and Obama was right? Then I would vote for Obama. But that's not the case.

The question is not astrophysics that requires someone to have Doctorate Degree or something but people like you just can't seem to think outside the box, look @ luzianne's answer.....Also can't anyone have a civil discussion w/o tossing the mud...As much as I dislike McCain I'm an adult and will act like it. I'll save my insults for another thread.
