I wonder why the press doesn't seem to take much notice of this.
Never in my lifetime, and perhaps in the history of the two party system, have the progeny of so many former presidents and luminaries of one party supported the candidate of the opposite party.
We know about Christopher Buckley, son of the most famous arch conservative of his time, William F. Buckley, supporting Obama. That's gotten some media attention because he's a well known writer.
And of course there's Ronald Reagan's son Ron, and daughter Patty.
But then there's also all kinds of Eisenhowers supporting Obama, as well as Goldwaters, descendants of Ike and Barry.
To understand the magnitude of this, just project twenty to thirty years into the future and picture the Bush daughters, some of Sarah Palin's children and grandchildren, Dick Cheney's grandkids and Bill O'Reilly's kids and grandkids all supporting Chelsea Clinton or one of the Obama girls for president on the Democratic ticket.
Just one more reason this has to be the most unique presidential race in the history of this country.
[PS: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention Cindy McCain's half-sister is an Obama supporter.]
