Kenneth Duberstein, former Chief of Staff for Ronald Reagan, endorsed Barack Obama today. A major factor in his decision was the obviously ill-considered selection of Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate. Duberstein put it most succinctly:
“What most Americans, I think, realize, is that you don’t offer a job, let alone the vice presidency, to a person after one job interview. Even at McDonald’s, you’re interviewed three times before you’re given a job.”
No doubt Ms. Palin would create record-breaking lines at the Anchorage McDonald’s when she returns to Alaska as a burger-flipper. Good for Alaska, good for McDonald’s, and good for America when that happens on Nov. 5.
