Eric Dondero refuses to speak to his brother. Not on Thanksgiving. Not over the holiday season. Not now, not ever. The reason? Mr. Dondero's brother, Alex, is a Democrat.
Photos and video of a baby's impromptu interaction with President Obama went viral Sunday and Monday, turning up on news websites, Facebook, Twitter and other social-media sites.
As for music, Mr. Dondero said he is a major rock 'n' roll fan but has "literally thrown out half" of his collection of compact discs — including albums from Jon Bon Jovi, who campaigned for Mr. Obama.
A lifelong libertarian, Mr. Dondero said he only votes for Libertarian and Republican candidates and has never voted for a Democratic candidate in any election — in fact, he abstains from voting in Texas judiciary elections because candidate party affiliation isn't listed on ballots, and he doesn't want to unknowingly support a Democrat.
