    We have a primary here in Ohio, in March. Statewide and countywide, this is the big enchilada because the democratic party has a stranglehold on so much of Ohio.

    I look at the ballot and it's depressing. I can't in good conscience vote for any of them, and I can't in good conscience not vote. I'll do a bit more digging, but in the end, I'll probably vote for Romney.

    Over the long term the court swings back and forth, so I don't really think it'll make a huge difference in that department either. And to be fair, there isn't anyone on the court I would say allows religion to dictate his interpretation of the Constitution.

    I disagree. Even if Obama wins, a race between him and Romney might do us a lot of good.

    What would he debate with Paul? The humanity of blacks and jews?

    How would we know? Religion plays a part in forming a person's views on many other issues, it's not an accident that most evangelicals are Republicans. But it's about the President's religion informing him of who he chooses to nominate. A fervently religious President will choose a more conservative nominee. And the court swings back and forth because the Presidency and Congress swings back and forth, if the nominations were all made while the Presidency was under one party, the composition would be quite different.

    Like it surprises anyone that you think in those terms.

    Romney's a slippery bastard and I don't think he stands for anything-- but one of the advantages of not standing for anything is not standing for anything I hate. Romney is never going to apologize for America being the world's sole economic and military superpower.

    Well, I won't assume that Romney will be the Republican nominee, so your choices would be more relevant if...and when...he is.

    But, given those two, I'll choose Romney because the worst Republican is better for our country than Obama.
