Dobson willing to endorse McCain
Not as if any evangelicals who would vote for Barack Obama put much, or any, stock in the political endorsements of James Dobson, but the Focus on the Family leader now says he is willing to consider endorsing John McCain. Notice that difference—willing. That’s a sea change from saying in February that he wouldn’t vote for McCain “as a matter of conscience.”
“I never thought I would hear myself saying this,” Dobson says in a radio broadcast that will air tomorrow. “... While I am not endorsing Senator John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.”
Dobson defended his change of heart to the AP, saying it was not a flip-flop or anything like it.
