Don't get me wrong -- I will most likely pull the lever at my school in New York City for Barack Obama and his running mate (I would think Joe Biden is THE likely the best choice of the hour!)
Obama's campaign and the Democratic Party will depend on support from independent voters to win the Presidency.
My gut instinct from my personal interactions with many independents across the country is that independents are supporting Obama with reservation.
Again, independents are not partisans. Independents are not Democrats or Republicans who LEAN independent. We are not independents who LEAN Dem or Repub.... We are voters who are ANTI-PARTISAN. We support a platform of open primaries, open debates, fair process for third parties. We support democracy and a voice for the American people.
Our best to Barack. Without political reform, it won't make a difference. But give it your best shot!!
