Passing the "Dignity Litmus Test"
(Hat tip: Feddie)
This pretty much nails where I am:
... To earn my vote, a politician must pass my dignity litmus test. Obama, like many Republicans and almost all Democrats, fails to meet that standard. But to earn my recognition of you as a fellow civilized human being, a person simply has to oppose crushing the heads of infants. Sadly, Obama fails to meet that standard too...Yep.
But McCain also fails my version of the "dignity litmus test" because of his position on ESCR, which is why I probably can't vote for him either, unless he changes his position on that issue between now and November.
