McCain advisor Niall Ferguson no longer supports him for presidency... that he's had an opportunity to compare the two in action.

from Clive Davis' blog at The Spectator: Niall Ferguson: no longer one of the Friends of John

The historian had originally signed up as a foreign policy advisor to the McCain campaign. He's now bailed out:

"I must say that since he won the nomination, which I was very happy about, I've played virtually no role. In fact, I've played no role. Because, uh" - he is suddenly, uncharacteristically halting - "how to describe it? - I felt much less ... enthused, I think is probably the word, now that it's between him and Obama. And I felt much more uncomfortable with some of the positions he has had to take in order to secure the conservative vote."
