Today, I spoke with Susan Eisenhower, president of the Eisenhower Group Inc., granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a former Republican Party official and now a supporter of Barack Obama for President. I talked with Susan on the direction of our country and why she left the Republican Party to endorse Senator Obama’s campaign. Susan just returned to Washington from campaigning for Barack Obama in Florida.
“I didn’t leave the Republican Party, they left me,” said Susan. “The Republican Party today does not look a thing like it did during President Eisenhower’s administration. I am very concerned about America’s position in the world. This is why I endorsed Barack Obama — because I do not see things changing without a new cast of characters in the White House.”
Susan has been vocal in her criticism of the Republican Party including the direction the McCain for President Campaign has taken the Party. “Many things have happened with the Republican Party over time. It is the way the campaign has been conducted. For instance, the choice of Sarah Palin was a signal to moderates in the party that the future of the party is to the hard right rather than to the sensible center.”
I hope you like this interesting interview.
