Democrat Joe Lieberman endorsed John McCain during the Republican National Convention. Now Democrat Lynn Forester de Rothschild has publicly endorsed McCain.
Perhaps what is so remarkable about this endorsement is the fact she is a member of the DNC Platform Committee and was an ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton.
Saying she did not trust Barack Obama, Ms. Rothschild said:
"In an election as important at this, we must choose the candidate who has a proven record of bipartisanship and reforming government, and that's John McCain. We can't afford a president who lacks experience and judgment and has never crossed party lines to work for meaningful reform. Amid tough economic times and foreign policy concerns, we need someone who is ready to lead. Although I am a Democrat, I recognize that it's more important to put country ahead of party and that's why I support John McCain."Ms. Rothschild, an attorney and businesswoman, plans to campaign for Sen. McCain through Election Day.
