Senator, I Knew Dwight Eisenhower

The granddaughter of the original electable old war hero with weak conservative bona fides publishes her Dear John letter in the Washington Post:

It is in this great tradition of crossover voters that I support Barack Obama’s candidacy for president. If the Democratic Party chooses Obama as its candidate, this lifelong Republican will work to get him elected and encourage him to seek strategic solutions to meet America’s greatest challenges. To be successful, our president will need bipartisan help.

Just the latest example of why McCain runs better against Clinton. ‘Fortunately’, Republicans seem to have decided that enduring that race is worth winning it.
