Finding a political identity By Jake Thornburgh, 15
With a brother who works for the Obama campaign as well as a family that tends to lean Democratic, I have grown up favoring Democrats. Early on in the Indiana primary, I strongly supported Barack Obama for president. I believed that he was the best and only candidate for the job. I agreed with Obama on immigration, global warming and education, and I strongly defended my beliefs up until I arrived at the Republican National Convention in September.
