Barack Obama is no conservative. Yet if he wins the Democratic nomination, come November principled conservatives may well find themselves voting for the senator from Illinois. Given the alternatives—and the state of the conservative movement—they could do worse.
For conservatives, Obama represents a sliver of hope. McCain represents none at all. The choice turns out to be an easy one.
The Right Choice?
The conservative case for Barack Obama
So why consider Obama? For one reason only: because this liberal Democrat has promised to end the U.S. combat role in Iraq. Contained within that promise, if fulfilled, lies some modest prospect of a conservative revival.
Above all, there is this: the Iraq War represents the ultimate manifestation of the American expectation that the exercise of power abroad offers a corrective to whatever ailments afflict us at home. Rather than setting our own house in order, we insist on the world accommodating itself to our requirements. The problem is not that we are profligate or self-absorbed; it is that others are obstinate and bigoted. Therefore, they must change so that our own habits will remain beyond scrutiny.

Nice post RR, but I fear elections if Obama gets in may change for the worst. No longer will people have any choices in candidates if the US either becomes Marxist or Facist, both which are happening as the New World Order agenda becomes more prevalent.
America will be no more after 2010 if things go as planned. We will be the North American Union and one step closer to one world government. The one world government goal is within 5-10 years from now from what i've read.
Obama lets power go to his head, this is already clear and he is not even President. McCain is the safer choice, New World Order or not.

excelt post RR i agree 100%. McCain should pick Romey IMO for his V.P. and then Id be behind the guy all the way.
I love how libs with there kool-aid think Obama is different from anyother candidate. Too me I see Jimmy Carter and a fool who is letting power and media hype going to his head. I would be surpised if someone one MSNBC calls him Mr. President.. that would be a good day. Its funny really Libs Hate and NEOCons hate...it just show happens libs hate more. lol

heck there isnt even a conservative case for juan mccain.
THEY ARE BOTH LIBERALS.
there is no conservative running in this election. and anyone who says they are conservative who supports either one of these canidates needs to look up what conservatism really is.

from an economic standpoint they are both globalists who are intent on leaving our nations borders open, selling out our nations inferstructure, and setting freetrade agreements that destroy our countries ability to manufacture anything at all, whilst exsporting jobs and importing foriegn debt...
to summarize they are both GLOBALIST corperate whores. one wears a red tie the other wears a blue tie. big deal. stop drinking the kool aide people.
the winds of change sound like another corrupt puppet politician passing gas in a global corperations lobbiests limo. oh wait that isnt change thats been happening in this country for 50 years. nevermind there is no change in this election.
