Among ardent Hillary Clinton supporters, one of those who most vocally declined to follow the candidate's lead and line up behind Barack Obama was Lynn Forester de Rothschild (New Jersey born, she married into the famed British banking family in 2000).
Back in early July, as Obama and Clinton briefly worked the fundraising circuit together, De Rothschild made clear she would have none of the push for party unity.
