Hillary Delegate Supports McCain instead of Obama

Democratic delegate Debra Baroshevich will support McCain instead of Obama this fall. She was a delegate to the Denver convention where she would have placed her vote for Hillary. Persuaded according to accounts from the Chicago Tribune and the Journal Sentinel by his sister who has served in Iraq she will only support McCain now in the general election.

Democratic pundits have been hoping that the divisive primary would not split the party. Seems like their worst nightmares might just come true.

As an avid supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic primaries, Debra Bartoshevich is not alone in her frustration over Clinton's defeat. She’s not alone in refusing to support Barack Obama. And she’s not entirely alone in saying she’ll vote this fall for Republican John McCain instead. But what makes her unusual is that she holds these views as an elected delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Denver this summer.
