I think not ... When I vote in the primary, I'll ask for a Republican ballot.
I can't really explain why Barack Obama would send campaign literature to me. Three possible explanations exist:
1. Every voter in the state of Texas got the literature, and I shouldn't read anything into it. That would seem to be prohibitively expensive.
2. Sen. Obama's political consultants know I vote in primaries, but don't know I'm a Republican. I don't think Sen. Obama's political consultants are incompetent.
3. Sen. Obama and his political consultants know I show up for Republican primaries, and they hope I'll cross over to the Democratic primary and vote for Obama.
Honestly, I think explanation #3 is the most plausible. Given that the Houston Chronicle went so far as to publish a story based on anecdotal evidence that Republicans were crossing over to the Democratic primary to vote for Obama, don't you think that the possibility that the Obama campaign is actively courting Republican voters is a story, too?
