Time to update my running list of celebrity endorsements for this year’s presidential campaign.
Needless to say, John Kerry is the runaway favorite among most celebrities.
According to The Hill:
“A horde of celebrities has asked if they can help the Kerry campaign defeat Bush in November. There were so many requests, in fact, that it’s almost more celebrity help than the Kerry campaign needs or can use.”
Here are the latest additions to the Kerry celebrity endorsement list:
Jon Bon Jovi
Dave Mathews Band
John Williams (film score composer)
Ed Begley Jr.
Leslie Ann Warren
And those previously mentioned:
Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds
Michael J. Fox
Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary)
As for the Bush campaign, the list is sparse by comparison. A web search only came up with three new names I had overlooked before:
Golfers Ben Crenshaw and Fuzzy Zoeller
and comedian Dennis Miller
Previously mentioned were:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger
I’m sure there are a few more out there but so far they aren’t making themselves too visible.
