et tu hitch?

there are very few people in this world that can change my opinion just by telling me theirs is different. in fact i can't think of any. there are a few who can make me rethink things i once found indisputable. let's face it some people are smarter then me (no, its true). one of those people is the brilliant christopher hitchens. after hearing and reading his endorsement of obama i was a bit disappointed but not surprised. after contemplating his point of view i think i have to disagree. i don't think hitchens is seeing the irreversible damage an obama presidency, along with a democratic house and senate, would do to the country. maybe he doesn't see it as damage - i do. i also think hitchens is a one issue person, that issue being defeating terrorists, and obama has definitely done more sabre rattling then mccain. im sure he thinks the candidates different views on pakistan is more important then their different social values - i don't. in the end i think old hitch has more faith in obama following through with what he says then i do. we'll have to wait Nd see if obama actually confronts pakistan. i think it's safe to say no matter who hitchens supported in the end, he was always going to continue to blast both of them when necessary.
