Below is a video I found today on Obama’s website. It’s of a gathering of supporters (many of whom claim to be ex-Republicans) to watch the Senator’s DNC acceptance speech. Obviously this took place before the GOP convention and perhaps some of those former GOPers changed their minds again, but I think this shows just how fluid people’s thinking on this election is, and just how strong the desire for change is.
UPDATE: Doug Deal has uncovered some information about John Nail the host of the party in the video. Nail claims to be a Republican, but it’s hard to imagine a Republican who was moved by Obama’s message of hope and change spending so much time spreading vicious lies about Sarah Palin faking her pregnancy. That doesn’t fit too well with hope and change. Here are some other articles by Nail. He seems to have a fixation on Palin.
I’m calling out the Obama campaign for claiming John Nail is a Republican. He’s not.
