Virtual open warfare is breaking out between the social conservative and moderate arms of the Republican party. And some big name Republicans like Colin Powell and Scott McClellan are backing Obama (see more at the Republicans for Obama website). And Politico has an interesting article about what is going on inside the McCain campaign itself.

UPDATE: Lots more appearing on this, starting with “Civil War on the Right” in the Washington Post. The New Republic reports that one of McCain’s advisors has jumped ship and says he has voted for Obama. His reason “is the choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis.” And finally, the Wall Street Journal has published a list of prominent Republicans who have lined up behind Obama.
