Murdoch - Obama will beat McCain

Color me surprised but Rupert Murdoch, yes the newscorp/faux news Rupert Murdoch, has apparently stated he believes Obama will defeat McCain and is looking forward to meeting Obama.
He also flatly states McCain has a lot of problems.
(I apologize for my novice linking skills in advance).
Now Ive been highly suspicious before when any rightwing nutbag comes out for either of the dem candidates, and I should be just as skeptical here, but for some reason I find this interesting.
Not necessarily for Rupert's assertion on Obama, it was widely known he and Hillary were making nice and most likely Rupert now sees the winds shifting in the dem party and wants to get on the, presumptive, winning bandwagon. He is after all a business man and he wants to cozy up to the winning side (and note: I do not mean this statement as a slam against Hillary in any way, I just see it as Rupert reading the lay of land).
But Im equally, if not more, shocked that he would openly admit McCain is flawed and has a lot of problems.
This has to be a serious blow to McCain (as Im not ready to say this is good for Obama). To have the owner of the republican news network openly dis their candidate is pretty staggering.
All that said, screw faux news. Just wanted to get that in there at the end.
