So far it's little more than rumor, the moderate Republicans who say they would vote for Obama this year, but Newsweek is trying to follow the story. Newsweek reporter Richard Wolffe found Susan Eisenhower, the late president's granddaughter, who would speak on the record, and a former Republican staffer for Strom Thurmond. Both are enthusiastic about Obama.

Beyond those two willing to be named and quoted, the pickings are slim and mainly anecdotal ... like Joe Scarborough's repeated tale of getting calls from conservative Republicans -- not moderates, conservatives -- who admitted that they were very attracted to the Obama candidacy.

Has any national journalist or pundit yet written about Republican women drawn to Hillary? Because there's bound to be a story there too.
