Why conservatives like Christopher Buckley are wrong

A tiny few conservatives and Republicans have, remarkably, said they will vote Obama.
They're wrong. In the next couple of weeks, we'll keep pointing out why.
Today we find a good example, as a London newspaper reports on a recent Obama speech in Manhattan:

" I want you to believe," said the candidate, clad in an open-necked shirt and barn jacket. "Not so much believe just in me but believe in yourselves. Believe in the future. Believe in the future we can build together. I'm confident together we can't fail."

Fundamental: conservatives don't believe elections and the work of government can, or should, "change the world."
