Yesterday two people defected from their party to endorse the candidate of the other party. Lady Lynn de Rothchild (an international banker who married into the famously beyond wealthy Rothchild family and lives half the year in Manhattan and half the year in London) was a big Clinton fund raiser who endorsed McCain because she thinks Obama (the son of a single mother who was on food stamps who worked and took out student loans to get a law degree from Harvard) is an elitist.

Meanwhile out of the west coast, former Republican mayor of Los Angeles, Richard Riordan endorsed Obama saying "I think he's a much more open person" and of McCain that "I had dealings with McCain where I didn't respect him." For those of you who aren't from LA, think of Riordan as the Bloomberg of the West. He's a moderate Republican who actually was looking like a good bet to run for governor until Schwarzenegger pulled the rug out of from under him.
Which endorsement do you think will have more influence?
