Quotes of the Day: the Jim Marshall edition

Democrat Jim Marshall, who has distanced himself from his own party’s standard-bearer since the start of the 2008 election, said Sunday night that Barack Obama would make an “excellent president.”

“I think he’s qualified,” Marshall said.

But the incumbent also called Obama’s opponent, Republican John McCain, someone “who has the experience.

“He’s somebody I know I can work with,” Marshall said.

We still don't know who Jim Marshall is supporting for president. What we do know though is that the 8th district Democrat thinks both Obama and McCain are qualified to hold the office.
