More Conservatives for Obama


MORE CONSERVATIVES FOR OBAMA….James Joyner on Ken Adelman’s endorsement of Barack Obama:

While Colin Powell, Lincoln Chaffee, Susan Eisenhower, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Jim Leach, Richard Riordan, Bill Ruckelshaus, and others can be dismissed as outside the conservative movement, Adelman can not. Perhaps, at some point, people will take these complaints about McCain and the direction of the party seriously rather than as an excuse for character assassination.

Hey, even BoJo agrees! Unfortunately, he sort of ruins his endorsement at the end by suggesting that if Obama wins maybe this will finally put an end to all that incessant complaining by blacks about how they’re treated in America. But that’s BoJo for you. Londoners sure do have odd taste in mayors, don’t they?
