+1 for Charles Barkley from a

+1 for Charles Barkley from a longtime fan!! I remember he was registered as a Republican for many years and considered a run for Gov. of Alabama. I also remember him switching towards the Democrats, I believe after W started with his mess. I think we should contact him and ask him how does he feel about the Constitution, civil liberties, non-interventionist foreign policy, sound money and all Ron Paulish principles. I seriously think he could be a good surprise!!
