A McCain Endorsement
Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a high profile supporter of Hillary Clinton and member of the Democratic National Committee's Platform Committee, will endorse Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain today. Rothschild's endorsement of McCain apparently stems from her intense dislike of Barack Obama. “This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don't like him. I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.” The proletarian Forester, who is married to international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, is chief executive officer for El Rothschild, a holding company with businesses around the world. She splits time between her homes in London and New York.
