BREAKING: Prominent Hillary backer Rothschild to endorse McCain

“This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don't like him,”

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN.

The announcement will take place at a news conference on Capitol Hill, just blocks away from the DNC headquarters. Forester will “campaign and help him through the election,” the spokesman said of her plans to help the Republican presidential nominee.

Forester was a major donor for Clinton earning her the title as a Hillraiser for helping to raise at least $100,000 for the New York Democratic senator’s failed presidential bid.

In an interview with CNN this summer, Forester did not hide her distaste for eventual Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

“This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don't like him,” she said of Obama in an interview with “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.”

Forester is the CEO of EL Rothschild, a holding company with businesses around the world. She is married to international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. Forester is a member of the DNC’s Democrats Abroad chapter and splits her time living in London and New York.

You bet they are, but those are the ones who keep drinking up the kool-aid. It is terrible to see these lunatics attack members of their own party.

You aren't a member of the Democratic party if you vote for John McCain.

Did you miss the meme that Democrats own their votes? I voted for Bush in 2000, the Dems happily accepted my donations in 2004 :p

Now McCain-Palin are feeling some of my checkbook love. :D

Right.

But Republicans who vote for the Messiahobama are still Republicans. And they hate George Bush.

Heck, even Democrats who vote for the Messiahobama are Republicans sometimes!

SO - if I want my vote to count at all - I have to vote in the democratic primaries - so I changed my registration to democrat. This town has not elected anything except a demoncrat in over 100 years.

She's not a Democrat. She's a conservative Republican woman who supported Hillary because she wanted to see a woman as president. In fact, I'm willing to bet money Rotshcild voted for Bush I in 1992 and Dole in 1996. And George W Bush twice.

The fact that conservative Republicans and corrupt Democrats supported Hillary Clinton, and REAL progressives for change supported Obama, it just reenforces my feeling that the right choice all along was Obama. And I am pretty pleased he is our party's nominee.

Trust-fund baby conservative Republicans like Rotchild should have no say on who our party nominates. THANK GOD we did not nominate Hillary and THANK GOD Obama didn't pick her as his running mate. I would have just stayed home on election day.

Wow. I'll be goddamned.

The McCain camp is recieving an endorsement from a woman who supported--and gave money to-- Sheila Jackson Lee and Charlie Rangle, of all people. :eek::eek::D

And then Ms. Rangle/Rothchild goes on FoxNews this morning and tells Steve Doocy how the Democratic Party has gone "too far left".

LMAO. Priceless.

I love how you were wrong and LL had facts to prove it.

Now tell me again how registered Democrats and Democratic backers aren't voting for McCain.

More from Lady Lynn:


I'm a longtime Democrat. I worked for Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan and supported Sen. Hillary Clinton in her presidential campaign. But I must face the uncomfortable truth that liberal elitism has been a weakness of the Democratic Party for more than half a century. In 1952 and 1956, for example, Adlai Stevenson emerged as the presidential candidate of the party's "new politics" wing. But while Stevenson's stylish, articulate, high-brow manner thrilled the nation's intellectuals, he could never connect with large numbers of working-class Democrats who found him aloof and aristocratic.

The "new politics" Democrats have found their new, improved Stevenson in Mr. Obama. In spite of his lofty liberal rhetoric, Mr. Obama is not connecting to millions of middle- and working-class voters, as well as women voters of all classes. Not only is his legislative record scant on issues that make a difference in their lives, but his current campaign is based mainly on an assumption of his transcendence.

Despite Mr. Obama's assertions that his campaign is about "you," much of his campaign is, in fact, all about him. In the months since the primaries ended, his creation and display of a mock presidential seal with his name on it, his speech at a mass rally at the Prussian Victory Column in Berlin, and his insistence on delivering his acceptance speech in front of fabricated Greek columns in a stadium holding 80,000 chanting supporters have crossed the thin line that separates galvanizing voters and plain old demagoguery.
