The irony here is that I'm an independent who respects both Senators Barak Obama and John McCain. But, and this is important, I know the difference! One will pull us out of Iraq (gradually), the other will "bomb, bomb, bomb Iran!"
According to several news stories I have read and heard on the radio, independent voters in New Hampshire were torn among McCain, Obama and Ron Paul. The Nation dealt with this phenomenon in greater depth:
There are still plenty of New Hampshire independents who are choosing between Obama and McCain. They are acknowledging as much in questions at the crowded town hall meetings where they say, as Bob Jean, an accountant did at a McCain event in Salem: "A lot of independents are trying to decide between Obama and you, or Hillary Clinton and you."
How...how do they not see the differences? Where have they been for the past two years? Eight years? It makes me apoplectic.
