On Thursday in the state’s capital, Jefferson City, Biden said, “Sarah Palin in my debate turned to me – she’s really good – Sarah Palin turned to me and she said ‘Well, I was only in second grade when Senator Biden was elected to the Senate.’ It’s true.”Here is CBS News' Ryan Corsaro with Biden's Politeness With Palin Is Over.
Biden then wound up a one-liner and pitched it to the audience. “Well, I should have turned to her and said, Sarah, you were in sixth grade the last time John had a good idea.”
Conservative Christopher Buckley, son of the late arch conservative William F. Buckley, endorses Barack Obama. Here is Sorry, Dad, I'm Voting for Obama. Note he's featured in Tina Brown's newest venture The Daily Beast.
Writing in the Washington Post, Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of the late World War II general and Republican-nominated president Dwight D. Eisenhower, is also endorsing Obama. Read Why I'm Backing Obama.
Eisenhower and Buckley aren't alone in their changing perspective. Former Michigan governor William Milliken, former Republican senator from Rhode Island Lincoln Chafee, and several other significant Republicans are leaning toward or endorsing Obama because McCain has become someone many of these people "did not originally endorse."
