This election has cost me several friendships amongst the ranks of Obama supporters. I find the whole thing baffling. How do you put more importance in a campaign than in decade long relationships? How do you hold someone's political opinion against them to the extent that you would rather write them off than allow them to differ from you?
Obama is a stranger that they know only through speeches and press releases. Yet he has become more important to some of his followers than relationships with people they've known for years.
This election is way too ugly for me.
