Republicans for Obama? Yes, but the numbers nor the desperation are not quite at the level of rats leaving a sinking ship, not yet, anyway....

None-the-less, there are significant powerful Republicans and Wall Streeters, corporate executives, and even one brilliant former Evangelist who are coming over to the Obama side of the aisle. One former U.S. Senator from Rhode Island, Lincoln Chafee, is strongly supporting Obama and has been for some time.

Nebraska's Senator Hagel:

Some Republicans dismiss Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska a the Republican Joe Lieberman. Because of his steadfast opposition to the senseless Iraq War and our ill-administered sloppy military tactics there, I am certain that he doesn't deserves that kind of insult, however.....

"An Obama-Biden ticket is a very impressive and strong team," said Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel. "Biden's selection is good news for Obama and America." Hagel said. "Palin doesn't have any foreign policy credentials," Hagel said in an interview published by the Omaha World-Herald. "You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don't know what you can say. You can't say anything."

Could Palin lead the country if GOP presidential nominee John McCain could not? "I think it's a stretch to, in any way, to say that she's got the experience to be president of the United States," Hagel said. McCain and other Republicans have defended Palin's qualifications, citing Alaska's proximity to Russia. Palin told ABC News, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska." Hagel took issue with that argument.

"I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, 'I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,'" he said. "That kind of thing is insulting to the American people."

Hagel told the newspaper that other governors have been elected to serve in the White House without experience in Washington. He said judgment and character were also important for the job. "But I do think in a world that is so complicated, so interconnected and so combustible, you really got to have some people in charge that have some sense of the bigger scope of the world," Hagel said. "I think that's just a requirement."

From Chuck Lasker of GOPforObama, one of the most consistently insightful folks whose work I treasure reading:

"Here's some research for you! As a Republican for Obama, I collect these links....
