This is quite the development, and to be emanating from a Huffington Post Contributor makes this even more dramatic. Read what she has to say, and it may provide you with some insight into Senator Obama's/ Senator Biden's Campaign Ticket. This is definitely an extreme endorsement, which testifies to the Character differences between the current Republican and Democrat Tickets.

Read on....

A long-time Democratic speechwriter who claims to have written for both Barack and Michelle Obama has announced she is leaving the Democratic Party and endorsing John McCain for president.

Wendy Button, a frequent columnist for the Huffington Post, where she is credited with writing speeches for Democratic Sens. John Edwards, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and John Kerry and for Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, made the announcement in a blog post called "So Long, Democrats" on The Daily Beast.

Button's reasons for defecting from the Democrats include false campaign slogans, poor economic policy and her admission that McCain was right about the surge in Iraq; but her argument begins with outrage over the way the Obama campaign attacked two women and a common man – Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber – the kind of people she thought the Democratic Party championed.

Wow! She is an expert on the economy and the war? Those statements are straight out of the McCain playbook. I wonder how much she was paid for this?

As if in some strange reality, the Obama campaign has been running a more negative campaign against McCain / Palin and the Plumber than the McCain camp has been running.

Simply amazing. I am suuuuure this will sway a lot of voters.

Perhaps the hopeium haze cleared long enough for her to see clearly whom she was serving and to run away very fast. McCain won't win, but at least she won't be serving 'The One' and that should keep her conscience clear when all is revealed.

It won't change any election numbers, but it'll make her feel better later.

Just wondering, has anyone heard of this in the msm cable news channels?

didn't think so.

But you damm well hear of every stuck up half liberal republican that is "endorsing" Obama.
