Embarrassing for McCain, that is.
You haven't heard of the guy, but his endorsement of Obama is particularly embarrassing.
His name Charles Fried. He's "a professor at Harvard Law School, has long been one of the most important conservative thinkers in the United States. Under President Reagan, he served, with great distinction, as Solicitor General of the United States".
He was also, until very recently, a McCain 2008 campaign advisor.
But he has not only endorsed Obama, he's already voted for Obama (by absentee ballot).
What made him stop drinking the McCain KoolAid? "The choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis."
(To be scrupulously fair, McCain choice Palin before the economic crisis. But still….)
