Default Endorsements

Do they matter?

If Colin Powell endorses Obama this week, will it have any influence?

I think they matter a lot for people who need their mind made up for them. If they didn't matter, companies wouldn't pay multiple millions for them for advertising campaigns.

Just as an aside, this reminds me of a fallacious ad I've been seeing a lot of lately: The HH Gregg ad with Peyton manning saying that if a sporting event is FILMED on a Sony HD camera, shouldn't it be WATCHED on a Sony HD TV?

Huh?

That's like saying a car runs better in the state it was made.

It's hard for me to understand what the undecideds are waiting for.

So, if any undecideds are reading this, just vote for Obama. You know you want to.

Vis, if you are in SC (South Carolina) you surely are outnumbered down here considering you seem to support Obama.

I just laugh when such-n-such an actor/actress pops up on the screen and says, "I endorse so-n-so and you should too!"

Thanks but no-thanks, I think I can handle my own responsibility of voting.

WOW. I would have to say that this particular endorsement could have a big impact.

Default Re: Endorsements

so did anyone catch powell on "meet the press" endorse obama?

good stuff. ive always thought powell was a wise and honorable man, and it seemed to pain him to say he wouldnt be voting for mccain. however he gave good reasons for why he wasnt and good reasons for why he would vote obama.

i think if anyone ever asks me to justify my vote i could just link them to the transcript. he summed up everything nicely in a nutshell.

he will not be campaigning and is not looking forward to getting a call for a cabinet spot.

HOWEVER, he did say, whoever was elected, if he got a call he would have to consider it (as if it were his duty as an american).

"when the president calls you have to listen".

They probably will vote Obama imo. They often have no strong convictions, and to the casual observer, the things that Obama promises sounds more appealing.....

Yeah, I am outnumbered down here in Liberal Charleston. It is not that bad, even though I got some dirty looks in the Natural Foods store for wearing my McCain shirt, thought they were going to start pelting me with eggs.

Heck, you should move up to Asheville, I was there a few weeks ago and didn't see a single McCain/Palin anything, but every lamp post, car, house, dog, cat, etc. had an Obama sticker or something on it.
