I guess it’s only fitting that Ronald Regan’s Chief of Staff Ken Duberstein announced today that he will not be voting for John McCain.

Update: 

Here is a small list of other prominent republicans that have chosen to endorse Barack Obama over John McCain:

  • Former Republican Governor of Massachusetts William Weld
  • Former Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee
  • Former Republican Governor of Minnesota Arne Carlson
  • Former Iowa Congressman Jim Leach
  • Wayne Gilchrest, Congressman from Maryland
  • Larry Pressler, Former Senator from South Dakota
  • Lowell Weicker, Former Governor and Senator from Connecticut
  • Richard Riordan, Former Mayor of Los Angeles

  • Colin Powell, Former Secretary of State
  • Douglas Kmiec, Head of the Office of Legal Counsel under Reagan & Bush (41)
