How about moderate Republicans voting Democratic?

The media political pundits have talked allot about so-called "Reagan Democrats" voting for McSame, but have paid very little attention to the possibility of moderate Republicans who are deeply sick of the Bush/Cheney brand of foreign and domestic policies voting for a Democratic candidate. For example:
McCain is just a Bush clone and offers nothing for us, our future or our kids. And, he wants to keep the [Iraq] war going.” she said.

But the jump to the Democrats comes with one caveat:

“There’s no way I’d vote for Clinton, I just don’t like her. If the choice is Clinton-McCain, it will be McCain.”
These are the words of Richard L. Fricker's 39-year-old niece, Penny, "a mom with a child in “Christian” day-care, a Presbyterian, a manager of an upscale jewelry store, a wife of a department store manager – and, oh yes, a Republican."

Obviously this is limited anecdotal evidence, but it's a potential worth media attention.
