Barack Obama Celeb Campaign Contributors

I seldom talk about politics especially those about other countries. So this is one time I am going to touch about the subject because I found this interesting site which gives a comprehensive information about campaign contributions particularly in the United States.

Why be interested at all in the U.S. elections? I really am not. But just now, meaning today only, and because it talks about some of my favorite celebs' contributions.

And after all, haven't we been considered as the "small, brown brothers", of the Americans for the longest time? Or are we not anymore?

Futhermore, I am a bit of a sucker for celebrity news, especially the ones I admire and like. :-)

Okey. So here goes: My favorite celeb contributors to Barack Obama's Campaign kitty are:

My unsolicited prediction? Barack Obama will win. During the primaries, I just heard him speak once, unmindful of what's going on in U.S. politics, and I told my partner, he is going to get the nomination. And this prediction is without scientific or research basis, just plain gut feel. :-)

And finally, despite what it has done to the rest of the world I wish God Bless America.

Cheers!
