Clinton Fundraiser Backing McCain For President

WASHINGTON (AP) -- John McCain's campaign says the Republican is picking up the support of a top Hillary Clinton fundraiser and member of the Democratic National Committee's Platform Committee.

Lynn Forester de Rothschild has said she thinks Democratic nominee Barack Obama is arrogant and has a problem connecting with average Americans.

Rothschild is a member of the DNC's Democrats Abroad chapter and splits her time living in London and New York. She was one of Clinton's top fundraisers, bringing in more than $100,000 for her presidential campaign. She built a multimillion-dollar telecommunications company before marrying international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild.

Rothschild plans to announce her support for McCain on Wednesday in Washington.

    TO Obama 08 4 Prez!, You know it would be nice if most of the people really cared how our country is run but they don't care. Most of come on here for one reason, do try to hurt other people with their hate. Once the election is over they will be gone until the next election, then out from under their rocks they will come to spread their hate again, some of them are disgusting.

    I'm so sick of reading the same BS from the same people over and over and over. I wish the election was today so people would grown up, stop calling names and shut their mouths. Some of you have made me hate the word 'president'.

    To XXX, You can have all the WISDOM in the world but if you don't use it correctly you can destroy mankind. I know WISDOM comes with old age, I also know senility comes with old age. Just some food for thought for you. After reading all the comments on here I really no longer care who wins this election, because it will never make any difference in America, it never has.

    John, You can call it old age, which is true. More importantly, its also called WISDOM; something that most people your age don't have a whole lot of.

    The interview on CNN was very revealing - that the CNN anchor doing the questioning had an agenda - not to hear the opinion of Rothschild on why she is supporting McCain Palin now and not Obamaniac (she was a former Hillary supporter), but,through her questioning and continuous interruptions, just try to make her look stupid. This is typical of media bias, and the loud mouth anchor made her intentions obvious. America is getting tired of these tactics by networks pushing their agenda on all of us.

    To John: Creationism should be allowed to be taught, but not as science. I also believe that the 'theory' of evolution should not be taught as science as it has yet to be proven. Francis Bacon "father of the scientific method" stated, "There are two books laid before us to study, to prevent our falling into error; first, the volume of the Scriptures which reveal the will of God; then, the volume of the Creatures, whch express His power." Sir Michael Faraday is known as one of the greatest scientists of all time stated,"The Bible, and it alone, with nothing added to it nor taken away from it by man, is the sole and sufficient guide for each individual, at all times and in all circumstances...Faith in the divinity and work of Christ is the gift of God, and the evidence of this faith is obedience to the commandment of Christ." English surgeon Lord Joseph Lister stated, "I am a believer in the fundamental doctines of Christianity." How about Galileo Galilei,Issac Newton,Samuel B Morse?

    Hey John, I think parents should step up to the table on this one like mine did. Yes, mom and did told us around 11 years old. The problem for most parents is having "information" that makes it a less awkward moment for them. Some parents just don't want to talk about it or just put it off and making it the schools problem. Kindergarden? They will learn more from watching two dogs.....
