Dobson freezes over, will vote for McCain

Time’s Swampland reports James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said Friday afternoon he has changed his mind and plans to vote for John McCain.

The announcement by the head of Focus on the Family, an influential Colorado-based ministry, came Friday afternoon at a conservative outreach meeting in Minneapolis, which had been organized by the McCain campaign. “If flip-flopping is a sin, then I am a sinner,” Dobson told the group, according to a first-person account of the address, which was confirmed by Dobson’s office.

In January, Dobson caused a stir when he told a radio host he didn’t “consider Arizona Sen. John McCain a viable candidate for president.”

The WorldNetDaily trumpeted the story:

“Speaking as a private individual, I would not vote for John McCain under any circumstances,” said James Dobson

“… He’s not in favor of traditional marriage, and I pray that we won’t get stuck with him,” Dobson said.
