Former Republican from a leading GOP family, Susan Eisenhower, is confronting the party she once admired but now is voting for Obama. President Eisenhower's daughter left the Republican party like many others because of the intolerable disaster of Bush & McCain's inept campaign.

The smart Republicans are jumping ship unwilling to be associated with a party that selects a dummy like Palin.

My father is an "Eisenhower Republican" (Dwight D. model) and he's voting for Obama.

An Eisenhower voting Democratic is like a Kennedy voting Republican. Wonder how the GOP is handling the daily assaults on their party. Must be rough

True, but that was 60 years ago, none have been heard from since...

It was just under 50 years ago that Eisenhower was president (till Jan. 61), and while none of the rest of them have gone into politics, the name recognition is still there.
