Another One?

Doug Mataconis adds his voice to the chorus of libertarians who view Obama as the most tolerable candidate with a chance to be President. As is the case with my endorsements of Obama, he is explicitly not endorsing Obama for the general election. Doug's "endorsement" is also much less enthusiastic than mine have been.

Money quote:

What’s needed, I am convinced, is a break with the past and a new direction. In some sense, although I hate to admit it, John McCain represents that for the GOP but Barack Obama represents it even more and, more importantly, is running against the one person who, if she wins, would guarantee a return to same crap we’ve been dealing with since 1993 on both sides of the political aisle.

Read the whole thing. Hopefully, tonight or this afternoon I'm going to break down the three remaining realistic candidates from a libertarian perspective.
