Barry Goldwater's Granddaughter Endorses Obama

Gotta love this!

Barry Goldwater's Granddaughter Endorses Obama

The granddaughter of the person who started the conservative revolution, the late Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-AZ), is appalled at what has happened to her grandfather's Republican party. She said that Goldwater stood for honesty, integrity, and personal freedom, qualities she finds lacking in the current Republican party in general and the McCain campaign in particular. For example, she could not imagine her grandfather opposing a woman's right to choose to have an abortion if she wanted one. That restriction of personal freedom is something he would have abhored. This endorsement of Obama is but the latest one in a string of endorsements by people with long-standing ties to the Republican party. The only high-profile (former) Democrat to endorse McCain is Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT).
