Kremlin critic Kasparov backs Obama
From correspondents in Ajaccio October 28, 2008

CHESS legend turned Kremlin critic Garry Kasparov has thrown his weight behind the Democrat Barack Obama as the next US president, saying the country needs “change”.

“Barack Obama is the right person in the right place at the right time,” Kasparov said today on the sidelines of a chess tournament in the French Mediterranean island of Corsica.

“The United States like the rest of the world is in need of change,” the former world chess champion said.

He was speaking as the epic duel between White House front-runner Senator Obama and his Republican rival John McCain entered its final full week ahead of the November 4 election.

Today’s Gallup tracking poll of likely voters nationwide gave Senator Obama a lead of 50 per cent to 45 per cent over Senator McCain. Broader polls of registered voters give the Democrat a double-digit margin.
