Radar readers, meet Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the ardent Hillary Clinton supporter who has called Barack Obama an “elitist” and will endorse John McCain today. Forester is a longtime friend of the Clintons, who honeymooned at the White House following her November 2000 marriage to British banker Sir Evelyn Rothschild. But her love for Democrats who have or still are running for president ends there. Forester, unironically, thinks that Obama “is arrogant and has a problem connecting with average Americans.” This is a woman, mind you, who splits her time between New York and London, who is the CEO of E.L. Rothschild, a holding company that manages hundreds of millions of dollars in investments across the world, and who is the mistress of two grand British estates.
In 2006 she told London’s Financial Times, “Frankly, for the last 15 years I haven’t had to work at all.” This is someone who understands average Americans.
