More endorsements

Colin Powell’s has the headlines, and with good reason, but also notable is the one from Deborah Lipstadt, and her follow-up post on some of the reaction she received.

There was talk from some that McCain should change his mind and drop Palin at the last minute, but maybe he should drop his whole party. To have won the nomination standing as an independent-minded centrist and then allowed his campaign to be characterised by the least appealing parts of the base - that was a dreadful lapse of judgement.

Obama’s direction of travel from the activists towards the centre is the better one. The question remains as to whether improved policies will result. Someone’s going to be disappointed, but I have no idea who.
