She thus tended to support Democrats by default. (Similar to the way people who hate socialism will often support Republicans by default.)
However, back in 1992 she supported Perot over both Clinton and Bush. Ever since then, I had a lot of respect for her; she knows the 2 parties give us crap to vote for. She initially supported Obama, but I think she basically ruled out Romney, and in absence of a high profile third choice, she simply hoped for the best from what she thought of as the lesser evil, because that is pretty much what we were stuck with.
