John McCain on the other hand has a long history of working with people from both parties when it was good for America. I've told you before that there are many groups out there supporting John McCain, that the OLM will not tell you about. Many of these groups have formed grass roots programs, some have even produced Television commercials to air in Swing States.
One of these groups is the Democrats for Principle before Party, formed from the Denver Group. The Group is currently running their third ad comparing Obama to Nixon in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Florida.
In addition you can see what other Democrats are doing to support John McCain and Sarah Palin at HillBuzz, a site maintained and visited by Hillary Clinton supporters. This group along with P.U.M.A. have really worked the ground game on behalf of McCain/Palin in Ohio and Pennsyvania.
These Democrats have put their Country First and are not only Voting for John McCain they are campaigning for him. Something that makes me admire them and the man they support.
One of Obama's former speech writers, Wendy Button, told her readers earlier this week that she is supporting McCain.
Here are some excerpts from Ms. Button's "coming out" story as they called it at PUMA08:
This drift started on a personal level with the fall of former Senator John Edwards. It got stronger during the Democratic National Convention when I counted the substantive mentions of poverty on one hand and a whole bunch of bad canned partisan lines against Senator John McCain. Some faith was lifted after Senator Hillary Clinton’s grace during a difficult hour. But that faith was dashed when I saw that someone had raided the Caligula set and planted the old columns at Invesco Field.
The final straw came the other week when Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (a.k.a Joe the Plumber) asked a question about higher taxes for small businesses. Instead of celebrating his aspirations, they were mocked. He wasn’t “a real plumber,” and “They’re fighting for Joe the Hedge-Fund manager,” and the patronizing, “I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber.”
As the nation slouches toward disaster, the level of political discourse is unworthy of this moment in history. We have Republicans raising Ayers and Democrats fostering ageism with “erratic” and jokes about Depends. Sexism. Racism. Ageism and maybe some Socialism have all made their ugly cameos in election 2008. It’s not inspiring. Perhaps this is why I found the initial mocking of Joe so offensive and I realized an old line applied: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me.”

These groups are following the lead of other Democrats, many that had backed Hillary Clinton, two weeks ago Lady Lynne de Rothschild, a former "Hillraiser" hosted a fund raiser for McCain and Palin in New York city attended by several well know Democrats. The New York Times reported this event brought in more than $500,000 for McCain/Palin. Sounds like McCain's bipartisanship is more than just Campaign Rhetoric to me.
So if these Democrats are working so hard to get McCain elected? What are you going to do? Talk to you friends, share the above links and information with those that are conservative democrats that do not want to Vote for Obama, but have never Voted for a Republican in their life. They are not alone. Moderate Democrats all over the country are moving to McCain. With their help, we will put McCain and Palin in the White House, but you must do your part....Get Out and Vote, and take a friend or two.
