“At the risk of scandalizing my high school civics teacher, this might be the first presidential and congressional election I’ve sat out on principle,” wrote columnist Rod Dreher. He explained that as a pro-life social conservative, his voting for Barack Obama is “all but impossible.” But, he said, John McCain’s “hot temper and bellicose foreign policy instincts are deeply troubling. . . . And the more Gov. Sarah Palin shares her nitwit nostrums, the less confidence I have that she’s capable of running the country if her boss’s term were abruptly ended by illness or death.”
He also wrote: “Absent something extraordinary, I’m going to reject both the Republican and the Democrat. Say what you will, but that will be the first presidential vote I’ve cast, so to speak, that I can truly believe in.”
