The Obama campaign has launched its Republicans for Obama group, which is not uncommon. There are people who cross party lines to endorse a presidential candidate every four years. But this crew of Obamacans strikes me as pretty thin gruel, considering Obama’s allegedly bipartisan appeal: former Congressman Jim Leach, former Sen. Lincoln Chafee, and former Bush fundraiser Rita Hauser. Leach and Chafee both lost in 2006, and the latter has actually bolted the Republican Party to become an independent. Hauser supported John Kerry in 2004. And the reporter in the story I linked above mispells Chafee’s last name. They couldn’t even manage a Chuck Hagel or Colin Powell?
