Rep. Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD) decides to break with the GOP and endorse Barack Obama:
I can’t help but notice that Gilchrest’s endorsement of Obama/Biden came the same day as Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild’s endorsement of McCain/Palin. One is a sitting Republican member of Congress, one is a member of the DNC’s platform committee. Why is the former treated as less significant than the latter?
Maybe it’s because the vast majority of the campaign press consist of immoral and incompetent people, but that’s just a guess. At any rate, it also seems noteworthy to me, at least, that neither Ron Paul, Chuck Hagel, Colin Powell, nor Condoleezza Rice has yet endorsed John McCain.
