Election Anxieties Over

Recently, I have been worried about who I should vote for in America. Fortunately, the following endorsement has helped me make my decision! How lucky we all are to have celebrities tell us how to vote! What would we do without their crucial endorsements?


Dear Friends and Fans:

Like most of you, I've been following the campaign and I have now seen and heard enough to know where I stand. Senator Obama, in my view, is head and shoulders above the rest.
He has the depth, the reflectiveness, and the resilience to be our next President. He speaks to the America I've envisioned in my music for the past 35 years, a generous nation with a citizenry willing to tackle nuanced and complex problems, a country that's interested in its collective destiny and in the potential of its gathered spirit. A place where "...nobody crowds you, and nobody goes it alone."

At the moment, critics have tried to diminish Senator Obama through the exaggeration of certain of his comments and relationships. While these matters are worthy of some discussion, they have been ripped out of the context and fabric of the man's life and vision, so well described in his excellent book, Dreams From My Father, often in order to distract us from discussing the real issues: war and peace, the fight for economic and racial justice, reaffirming our Constitution, and the protection and enhancement of our environment.

After the terrible damage done over the past eight years, a great American reclamation project needs to be undertaken. I believe that Senator Obama is the best candidate to lead that project and to lead us into the 21st Century with a renewed sense of moral purpose and of ourselves as Americans.

Over here on E Street, we're proud to support Obama for President.

  1. Are you serious? They have not even had a debate yet. At this point, I see NO candidate that represents my vision of America. Hey if Obama is president, maybe we can use the stem cell research that he supports and combine that with cloning to bring back Lincoln ;)

  2. I think celebrity endorsements are quack, no matter who the celebrity is. Most candidates would prefer not to have any celebrity endorsements. Who would want an endorsement from Dave Chappell or Hugh Hefner. Almost even worse would be an endorsement from a has been like William Shatner or David Hasselhoff. At the lowest end of the spectrum are those celebrities who should retire but just won't like Dick Clark and Bruce Springsteen.

  3. Scott, since you are now such a fan, I wonder who Stephanie Meyer is endorsing.... That would have to be the ULTIMATE celebrity endoresement (assuming you consider her a celebrity).

  4. You boys are sooo funny! I just love celebrity endorsements. Like who are Ellen, Carol Duvall, and the judges from So You Think You Can Dance endorsing? ;) LOL
