McCain Report: At What Point Do You Start Feeling Sorry For The Guy?

This has to hurt. Charles Freed, one of the most distinguished conservative legal scholars in the country, solicitor general under Ronald Reagan and a prominent member of several McCain campaign committees announced that he is resigning from the McCain committees and voting for Barack Obama. The reason? McCain's pick of Sarah Palin.

With all the announcements of conservatives switching parties and announcing for Obama, does anyone know of any prominent people who have switched the other way? I suppose you could count Lieberman, although I don't really count him as he is officially in the U.S. Senate as an Independent. Still, he was Al Gore's running mate just eight years ago, so I would give McCain that one. Anyone else?

In answer to the question in your post title, I say, "Never."

What fascinates me about all the defections is that they are happening to McCain now, but did not happen to Bush in 04. Bush was a proven disaster at the time, yet Republicans stayed loyal for the most part.

I do (almost) feel sorry for McCain. They guy trades his integrity for the party, and everyone abandons him anyway.

Wait, no I don't feel sorry for him. I have to keep remembering that he would put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency in order to gain power...
