ABC News Wants You to Know Who Betty Culbreath is Voting For

Betty Culbreath

Dallas Housing Authority chair Betty Culbreath, who is known to enjoy hot ham sandwiches on occasion, is in the national news this a.m. -- because she's a Republican voting for Barack Obama, oh my! Notes ABCNews.com's Marcus Baram, she goes way, way back with the Bush family, but she's going Obama this go-round for several reasons, none involving "racial pride." Still, this is surprising: "Though she supported Mike Huckabee during the Republican primaries, she says she cannot support the party's presumptive nominee, John McCain, because she claims he has a 'volatile' temperament." Now, see, I would have thought that would have been a plus. --Robert Wilonsky
