My husband and I were foolish enough to let a friend stay with us after she got out of the hospital following a stroke until she "got back on her feet". Well, that was almost two years ago, and she's still here. However, we've managed to rub off on her. All three of us early voted on Sunday. Last night, as we gave out candy, she admitted that she had voted for Obama. Now, this woman is a hard-core, Indiana-by-way-of-Mississippi Republican. However, she hated all of the Repub candidates this time - especially Newt and Mitt. I would joke with her that it was going to come down to voting for the Mormon or the black guy. Well, she just couldn't stomach the Mormon's flip-flopping. Plus, the "47%" comment hit home with her, since she's now on disability. She IS one of the people depending on the government. So, she voted for the black guy. I'm sure that she'll probably be disowned or something by her Mississippi relatives. But, at least we managed to get through to her!
