Noted Neo-Con Praises Obama

Charles Krauthammer criticized McCain for attempting a third "hail Mary" with his "suspension" of his campaign, from which he had to climb down:  

(McCain's) frenetic improvisation has perversely (for him) framed the rookie challenger favorably as calm, steady and cool."
Krauthammer still appears to prefer that McCain win, but not enough to overcome his own need to make sagacious comments.  He continues:
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. famously said of Frankin Roosevelt that he had a "second-class intellect, but a first-class temperment."  Obama has shown that he is a man of limited experience, questionable convictions, deeply troubling associations... and an alarming lack of self definition--do you really know who he is and what he stands for?  Nontheless, he's got both a first-class intellect and a first-class temperment.  That will likely be enough to make him president.
Perhaps he is now concerned to assure access and relevance under an Obama Administration.
