Now one of John McCain's actual advisers has switched sides:

Charles Fried, a professor at Harvard Law School, has long been one 
of the most important conservative thinkers in the United States. 
Under President Reagan, he served, with great distinction, as 
Solicitor General of the United States. Since then, he has been 
prominently associated with several Republican leaders and 
candidates, most recently John McCain, for whom he expressed his 
enthusiastic support in January.

This week, Fried announced that he has voted for Obama-Biden by 
absentee ballot. In his letter to Trevor Potter, the General Counsel 
to the McCain-Palin campaign, he asked that his name be removed from 
the several campaign-related committees on which he serves. In that 
letter, he said that chief among the reasons for his decision "is the 
choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis."
