Despite appearances and my passion right now for this election, I do try to keep an open mind and believe in Voltaire's declaration. I respect your right to your own opinion about Barack Obama and would not mind a private email discussion between us, but I have no idea who you are. If you would send me another anonymous comment and include your email, I will not post the comment but I'll write you privately and we can have a private discussion between us. We can keep it at a high level. I don't know that either of us will change his / her mind, but you never know.
