HT to Libertarian Republican on this one.
This one should cause some discomfort for Obama, although the excuse and attack machine is once again in action. Rather than dismissing matters like this some soul searching might be in order to try to avoid repeats but Obama seems to just toss them under the bus and move on.
From the Boston Herald.
WASHINGTON - A top Hillary Rodham Clinton fundraiser threw her support behind Republican John McCain on Wednesday, saying he will lead the country in a centrist fashion and accusing the Democrats of becoming too extreme.
"I believe that Barack Obama, with MoveOn.org and Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean, has taken the Democratic Party — and they will continue to — too far to the left," Lynn Forester de Rothschild said. "I’m not comfortable there."
Rothschild is also a member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee. She said she would be stepping down from her position on the committee but will not switch political parties.
She praised McCain for working with Democrats to pass legislation and for standing up to President Bush on the Iraq war.
"I just ask, who has Barack Obama ever stood up to? And that troubles me a lot,"

Well, sorry about that but it disappeared over night so we'll try this one: -
