Sigh...we're about to hear a bunch more about the "Obamacans"

Over at The Hill, they have an article up about how the Obama campaign is trying to put together a "publicity blitz" with a bunch of people whose [ahem] solid conservative judgment has led them to endorse Teh Lightworker:

The campaign recently held a conference call with a small group of officials who are or who have previously been identified with the Republican Party, according to sources who were on the call.

The initiative to highlight the backing of “Obamacans” is in its infancy. But campaign events featuring Republicans praising Obama are seen as an effective counterpunch to Sen. Joe Lieberman’s (I-Conn.) aggressive backing of Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) White House bid.
The list of GOP superstars they might tap includes Allahpundit's favorite punching bag, Doug Kmeic, not-even-a-RINO-anymore Lincoln Chafee (what a winner!), Dwight Eisenhower's granddaughter Susan, some dude from Texas I'd never heard of before, and, of course, the only man who can out-Maverick John McCain by sucking up to the MSM:
There has been a lot of conjecture that Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) will endorse Obama. Hagel, a critic of the Iraq war, is the only senator who has not endorsed a presidential candidate. Hagel is traveling with Obama and Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) on their congressional delegation trip to the Middle East.
God, what a crushing defeat it would be for conservatives if Hagel or Chafee were to endorse the Obamessiah!  Seriously, the only person mentioned who has a little bit of credibility with conservatives (emphasis on the "little bit") is Colin Powell, and the article notes that he's donated to McCain, if he hasn't endorsed him.

Seriously, if that's the best they can do, all they'll end up achieving is peeling off the few RINOs who figure McCain's too conservative for their tastes anyway.
