Rod Dreher's "Really Excited" by Obama. Still Won't Vote For Him Though.

Pardon our absence -- server issues, in short. So, back to business. Courtesy The New York Times' Bloggingheads today comes this video, featuring Time's Amy Sullivan and The Dallas Morning News' Rod Dreher. They "examine the growing appeal of Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama." Feel free to examine, after the jump, the growing appeal of Rod Dreher. Me, I stopped listening after Dreher said, "I am a Republican who's really excited by Obama and almost certainly couldn't bring myself to vote for Obama." Turns out the Crunchy Con did like himself some Mondale, way back when. Reason: "I was stupid."--Robert Wilonsky
