Beltway Happenings 
Sept. 17, 2008--Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a Hillary Clinton supporter who served as member of the DNC's Platform Committee, announces she is endorsing Sen. John McCain.  Judy Black, co-chair of Women for McCain, looks on.
From the press release...

“In an election as important at this, we must choose the candidate who has a proven record of bipartisanship and reforming government, and that’s John McCain,” Rothschild said. “We can’t afford a president who lacks experience and judgment and has never crossed party lines to work for meaningful reform. Amid tough economic times and foreign policy concerns, we need someone who is ready to lead. Although I am a Democrat, I recognize that it’s more important to put country ahead of party and that’s why I support John McCain.”
