Bill Weld

Guess The Next Obamacon
October 24, 2008

Today brought the news that former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld (and Mitt Romney booster in the '08 GOP primaries) is endorsing Obama. He joins Colin Powell, Arne Carlson, Ken Adelman, and Scott McClellan in defecting from the GOP to Obama. So who's next? I can't imagine an actual Republican office holder--even one in danger of getting swept away by a blue wave, like Gordon Smith in Oregon--will take the plunge (although Smith, of course, has stopped just short of endorsing Obama).
