WilliamK Posted October 12, 2008 Report Share Posted October 12, 2008 Christopher Buckley, son of William F. Buckley, Columnist for National Review, former speechwriter for George H. W. Bush, supporter of John McCain during the primaries and still having some admiration for the man, has endorsed Barack Obama. He announces, and explains, his decision here: http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-sto...-case-for-obama It's an interesting and very thoughtful article, regardless of whether you agree with him or not. With the ugly turn McCain's campaign has taken, coupled with his faulty economic ideas and increasingly obvious poor judgment in choosing his running mate, I expect to see more intelligent and conscientious conservatives crossing over in the coming weeks. Maybe not many high visibility ones like this, but the effect will show up in the polls and in the voting booths on election day. They won't be turning into Democrats, but they will recognize that John McCain has lost his bearing and that Barack Obama, even if out of alignment with some of their ideals, is the better candidate for President.
