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.
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 CNN’s Joe Johns. “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.
She told New York Magazine in October of '07 why she's voting for Hillary: "I think if history is our guide, we've had stronger economies, more wealth creation, under Democratic presidents than we have under Republican presidents." Hmm. And Barack won't be one of those Dems? You trust McCain who's already shown what idiotic and impulsive decisions he can make? (Palin.)
She's super good friends with the Clintons (she spent her honeymoon at the White House), Tony Blair, and even Vernan Jordon. It's hard for me to believe she's doing this without Hillary's blessing.
So, a hearty morning fuck you to the super non-elitist Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild and to my pal Hillary Clinton.
