Right Wing Talk Show Host Endorses Obama

The conservative movement continues to denounce John McCain, and moves towards supporting an unlikely candidate, Senator Obama. Michael Smerconish, best known perhaps for his unrelenting neoconservative views, and being a fill in for Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Chris Matthews on his Philadelphia based program he stated:

“My conclusion comes after reading the candidates’ memoirs and campaign platforms, attending both party conventions, interviewing both men multiple times, and watching all primary and general election debates.

John McCain is an honorable man who has served his country well. But he will not get my vote. For the first time since registering as a Republican 28 years ago, I’m voting for a Democrat for president.”

Michael Smerconish, 10/17/08

This is just the most recent in a long line of endorsements for Senator Obama from the conservative movement. The highest profile conservative to endorse recently was the National Review founder’s son, Chistopher Buckley. Buckley was forced to resign from his father’s creation after endorsing Senator Obama in a passionate editorial. Others that have endorsed Senator Obama include Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Andrew Bacevich, Francis Fukuyama, Christopher Hitchens, Dorothy King, and Andrew Sullivan, among a host of others.
