It’s the strongest signal yet from the global elite about who they want in the White House.
Former Hillary Clinton backer Lynn Forester de Rothschild (right) threw her support behind Republican U.S. presidential candidate John McCain today, after calling Democratic candidate Barack Obama an “elitist.”
That’s got to be a first for a Rothschild, unless there is a “down-to-earth” member of the family I haven’t heard about.
From her Lady de Rothschild’s bio, at the Financial Access Initiative, where she is an advisor: (de Rothschild) is a member of the Chatham House, Council on Foreign Relations and the Foreign Policy Association, and she served as a member of the National Information Infrastructure Advisory Committee and as the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board under President Clinton.
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.”
