Top that Obama! – Clinton gets Streisand

8

A day after Barack Obama announced that Oprah Winfrey would campaign for him in some early primary states, Hillary Clinton has countered with her own not-so-surprising celebrity endorsement.

Singer/actress Barbra Streisand, who has a history of supporting the Clintons, has announced her support for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to a press release by the campaign.

“Madame President of the United States…it’s an extraordinary thought. We truly are in a momentous time, where a woman’s potential has no limitations,” Streisand said in the release. “Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time. ”

A Hillary Clinton presidency, Streisand added, would: “shatter through that glass ceiling for all women.”

Clinton, in the release, said she was honored to have Streisand’s support.

“Barbra has used her immense talent to be an advocate for truth, justice, and fairness and I deeply appreciate her confidence in my candidacy as we work together to change the direction of our nation.”

  1. Ho-hum. Oprah is a far more relevant figure in today’s pop culture. Everything about Streisand and Clinton screams “Has Been !” And Streisands misspellings and grammatical errors on her own blog are atrocious.

  2. Unfortunately race always plays a key role in decesions like this. Oprah is doing what she thinks is right for a person of her race. I think it discredits Oprah a little bit, because most people think oprah is above the race issue, but she is not.

    I will tell you an old story, my grandma told me in 1984 that she has not voted in years, but she was going to make sure she voted in that year because a black man was running for President (Jesse). My grandma was white, but the point is she was not coming out to vote for a particular person but to vote against a black man. I still suspect that if a black person were to run for President that you would have white people who would normally never vote come out to vote against that person. I do not think the country is ready for a black person to be our President. I think a black female would have a much better chance then a black male.
    These are feelings I get when I speak to the average Joe on the street when they are being honest.
    No racism, just what I believe to be the tone of the political arena when it comes to our President.

  3. Clinton or Obama? My money is on Clinton. I just heard of Obama in the last few years. Experience is one of the strong points along with the issues. Obama is a great candidate, but campaigning and producing as President (as we see a lack of in Bush, but lets not compare smart with smartless). I’m Black and when it comes to running the country, it should not be about race but some can’t live without it. Opra it doing what she thinks is a good choice and I respect that. A Hiliary and Obama ticket would be a good chance to get a Democrat in office. But noone runs to be Vice President. Bush has shown his unsurpassed talent at ruining a country. . .nobody can top him in that category. I know some highschool dropouts that could do better than Bush. I hope Opra don’t have regret (she won’t if Obama gets the nomination) since she has been a supporter of the Clintons for a long time. The voters got it wrong when they relected Bush…or did they? When Supreme Court gots involved and they Pro-Bush you know what the outcome was going to be…president elected by court. This is my first blog and it could go on for sometime and if there is someone who agrees or disagree it will widen my horizon because I am openminded to enlightenment……Thanks

    Why should I care?

    Girls of fifteen
    Sexually knowing
    The ushers are sniffing
    Eu-de-cologning
    The seats are seductive
    Celibate sitting
    Pretty girls digging
    Prettier women.

    Magically bored
    On a quiet street corner
    Free frustration
    In our minds and our toes
    Quiet stormwater
    My generation

    Uppers and downers
    Either way blood flows.

    Inside outside. Leave me alone.
    Inside outside. Nowhere is home.
    Inside outside, Where have I been?
    Out of my brain on the five fifteen.

    On a raft in the quarry
    Slowly sinking.
    On the back of a lorry
    Holy hitching.
    Dreadfully sorry
    Apple scrumping.
    Born in the war
    Birthday punching.

    He man drag
    In the glittering ballroom
    Greyly outrageous
    In my high heel shoes
    Tightly undone
    They know what they’re showing
    Sadly ecstatic
    That their heros are news.

  5. None of this really matters. If the american public is going to listen it’s going to be someone they trust. Oprah has the ears of billions and all she has to do is speak the truth about Obama’s integrity and it’s done they’ll open up. America wants change but we need to trust someone before we make that step. People trust Oprah and her judgement with that said the only thing that Obama really needs is her audience. It’s a proven factor that when people listen to the candidates speak Obama pulls more and more each time. Truth, honesty and integrity is what our coutntry needs after so many years of abuse and deceit. Senator Obama has the ability to put us on that path.

    If what you guys are saying about oprah is true then I suggest she dump Obama and run for the presidency herself. Do you think her congregation will vote for her? It will be interesting to watch.
