For anyone wondering what could drive Rudy Giuliani’s daughter, Caroline, to support Barack Obama for president, help is out there. Here’s a release I just got:

Psychologist Available to Comment on Caroline Giuliani’s Decision to Publicly Endorse Barack Obama
Dr. Alan Hilfer, a pediatric psychologist, and Director of Psychology at Maimonides Medical Center in New York is available to comment on the endorsement of Barack Obama for President by Rudy Giuliani’s daughter, Caroline.
“In the world that an incoming college Freshman lives in, a declaration on facebook is a very public action,” says Dr. Hilfer. ” In public families, particularly those in the political world it is understood that their differences will be kept private. Caroline Giuliani obviously has very significant issues of anger directed towards her father.”
” For any parent a public embarrassment is humbling. For a candidate seeking to develop their credentials in the area of family values this could be devastating, since Mr. Giuliani’s son, Andrew has previously said that he and his sister have issues with the way their father treated their mother in the final months of their marriage and in the subsequent divorce.”
