Various people want to tell us (me) "how to talk to Obama supporters" so as 
to alienate them. And I certainly agree that just talking in abstract terms
about the "twin parties of imperialism" isn't the best approach. I prefer
starting with CONCRETE FACTS. Making sure people KNOW what Obama said in 
to CANF, or what he said in Washington to AIPAC, or what he said in a TV
interview about what he's looking for in a Vice-President, or that his 
platform calls for a larger military and sending more troops to Afghanistan, 
so on. I'll let people make up their own minds about what to DO with that
information; I doubt there's much I can do to persuade them in that way. 
What I
CAN do is make sure they aren't making up their minds based on incomplete or
inaccurate information, as all too many people are doing.
We don't agree politically on this issue, but I can respect this and 
appreciate how you deal with differences.
