And the endorsements just keep rolling in for Obama

By Michael J.W. Stickings

For example, from The New York Times, which provides a useful issue-by-issue endorsement: "This country needs sensible leadership, compassionate leadership, honest leadership and strong leadership. Barack Obama has shown that he has all of those qualities."

And also from former Bush press secretary Scott McClellan: "From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has the best chance for changing the way Washington works and getting things done and I will be voting for Barack Obama and clapping." (And, you know, there was the big deal about his book a while back, the insider account of Bush and the Iraq War. I still think that was overblown. McClellan have have come around some, but he's still a gooey Republican-lite. It's one thing to want things done. What exactly does he want done, though?)

Actually, Obama is doing quite well with the Bush "coalition" generally. And he's way, way ahead with Jewish voters.
