I have, lately, encountered a number of "republicans" that only laugh when I mention that I am voting for Obama. This is, of course, irrational, as most of their opinions are not supported with any substantial defense. There are many points to discuss, in defense of supporting Obama, and I would like to know yours. Let's suppose a democrat or "republican" comes to you, and argues your vote. What would you say, as a conservative/republican, in defense of supporting Obama?
