Well, I just had one of those moments. Turns out that Powell is not the only former Republican big-shot to endorse Obama. A much more surprising one has emerged: Ken Adelman. In an e-mail he outlines why he has chosen to support Obama and we learn once again that Sarah Palin is quite the boat anchor for the GOP ticket.
The most important decision John McCain made in his long campaign was deciding on a running mate.You betcha'!
That decision showed appalling lack of judgment. Not only is Sarah Palin not close to being acceptable in high office—I would not have hired her for even a mid-level post in the arms-control agency. But that selection contradicted McCain’s main two, and best two, themes for his campaign—Country First, and experience counts. Neither can he credibly claim, post-Palin pick.
