57 Reasons to Vote for Obama/Biden
Background: I’m someone who has needed to be persuaded as to why Barack Obama deserves my vote because I didn’t support him during the primaries (none of the GOP candidates came even remotely close to holding positions I support – they were off the table from the start; I state this as a matter of full disclosure). Once it came time to determine why I should (and could) vote for him, I decided to re-run a series I did in 2006 called the 57 Reasons to Vote No on Issue 3, which was a constitutional amendment effort to legalize casinos in Ohio.
On the Obama/Biden 57 reasons that I’ve been posting at my blog (Writes Like She Talks), I’m up to #39, which is a re-cap of all the other reasons I’ve written about so far and which I’ve listed below.
Why bother with such a thing? Because especially for undecided and independent voters, putting into words, reading what qualities, information and facts other people look to for making their decisions often can be helpful.

There’s significant discussion on several of the reasons and I would encourage people to challenge them, as well as add to them. And if you’re undecided, do these help or hurt? What else would you want to consider when considering whom to choose as the next president and vice president?
