From the Jackson, MS, Clarion-Ledger:
In a telephone interview from Italy, Duke called Obama a "black racist" endorsed by communists and predicted if Obama wins "it will absolutely change politics forever. European Americans will realize we've lost the foundation of our country."
The former Klansman said he'd been told by others that if Obama becomes president it "paves the way for David Duke as president."
Asked if he'll vote for McCain, Duke replied, "No way. I'm not going to vote for somebody I consider a traitor to our American heritage."
Duke cited McCain's support for the war and immigration as reasons he opposes him. "If I were going to vote, it would probably be third party," he said. "I would probably vote for Ralph Nader."
