    Many, I'll list some here. . .

    MARSHALL WHITMANN, FORMER TOP AIDE TO REPUBLICAN SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN, ENDORSES KERRY.

    Whitmann warns that the Bush administration supports an agenda that "seeks to reward the wealthy" while undermining international alliances needed to prevail against terrorism. "If George W. Bush is re-elected," he warns, "unlimited corporate power, cynicism and division will ride high in the saddle."

    Full Endorsement

    12 RETIRED U.S. ADMIRALS & GENERALS ENDORSE KERRY FOR PRESIDENT:

    Active-duty military officers are prohibited from speaking out against the President. However, a coalition of retired U.S. military leaders believes that John Kerry offers a stronger, more secure America. They include:

    Admiral William Crowe, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (the highest-ranking officer in the officer in the U.S. military)

    General John M. Shalikashvili, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
    General Wesley K. Clark (former NATO Supreme Allied Commander)

    Admiral Stansfield Turner, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)

    Lieutenant General Claudia J. Kennedy, only woman to achieve the rank of three-star general in the U.S. Army

    General Joseph Hoar (former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Central Command and Chief of Staff at Central Command during the first Gulf War)

    Admiral Turner observed that Bush "has got us into a morass in both Iraq and Afghanistan. John Kerry …would be a much better commander-in-chief."

    Lieutenant General Edward D. Baca, retired Chief of the National Guard Bureau, has two children in the military. "I know that John Kerry will never send them in harm’s way, without exhausting all means of diplomacy," he says, adding that Kerry "will make sure that they are part of an armed force as best equipped, best training, and most respected in the world."
