Like Rats Abandoning a Sinking Ship....

... well-known Republicans or former Republicans are endorsing the Obama/Biden ticket

The latest entries:

Arne Carlson
Colin Powell
Scott McClellan....

Who else will 'come out' in the next 11 days?

Friday afternoon update.... add William Weld, former Republican governor of Massachusetts, to the list.

Saturday update - Peggy Noonan, former speech writer for President Reagan, has not been happy with the Palin nomination. I don't know whether she's gone as far as endorsing Obama, but she has been very articulate in her criticism of the McCain campaign.

The hard right is dismissive (and in some cases, angry) about these defections. Local talk radio gasbag Jason Lewis would prefer that the Republican party keep getting smaller, and purer.

Have at it!
