ABC News

Hollywood heavy hitters Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielburg are among the hollywoodites who have bolted from the Clinton camp and moved over to the Obama camp. Big Hollywood money and 'star suport' is headed to Obama.

I remember during the Clinton years they wined and dined Hollywood. The Lincoln Bedroom was a Hollywood favorite stopover spot. Remember Danny Devito's drunken blathering about him and his wife Rita in the Lincoln Bedroom??

Well .. Hillary may have thought Hollywood was in her pocket after the antics she and her husband let Hollywoodites do in the White House. Guess it isn't so.

Arrrrggghhh!! I get sick when I hear mental giants like Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn talk poilitics. Does anyone take them seriously?

But, The Boy Blunder knows where to hold his hat out for money, gotta give him that.

I don't take them any more seriously than I do anyone else with an opinion.

Maybe I'm not your everyday American, but Hollywood people for the most part don't impress me. I mean I think they're interesting, much in the same way I find meercats interesting. They're just people (the actors, not meercats). But I know a lot of Americans think actors and 'stars' can do no wrong.

I suppose Hollywood's chosen will draw a few supporters. I'm still waiting to see Obama's platform in detail before I decide whether or not I could back him.

barack is going to have to face the nation with his voting record, his little fancy fake talk wont due it in the red states and with independants, he is also against the fairtax bill HR25 and is on the congressional scorecard for being against it along with hillary.

hollywood people are nothing but a bunch of hyporcite idiots anyways, does not suprise me they would endorse a fake candidate, he will fold when he has to adress key issues in this nation and he will be exposed along with hillary as the socialist they are.

I'm not surprised that the likes of Spielberg are backing Obama. Hillary would be a disaster if she was to run in 2008. Obama may be the Dems best chance of winning in 2008 which dosnt say a lot about the party. There is a danger that Obama has made his run to soon and that his campaign will run out of steam when it counts.

Hilary? Obama?
I'm not looking forward to this election.
I'm not voting for either.
And Hollywood's nod for Obama does nothing to impress me.
When I see the garbage that comes out of Hollywood these days, I have little to no respect for their political opinions.....and as BH said, their just people.
LOL! Steven Spielberg and Oprah's opinion means squat to me.
I don't know why, but I'm thinking that Bush (who I don't like) might possibly pale in comparison to what Hilary or Obama have in store for this country............look out America.

didn't hollywood give the nod to beloved right-winger ronald reagan?

just because they aren't pundits, doesn't mean they don't hold sway
and honestly, sean penn is probably more well informed than ann "canada was involved with the vietnam war" coulter

I would wait before reading too much into it. It would be a social error for those precariously perched atop our cultural ladder not to nab a photo op with the promising young politician. If said promising young politician's ethnicity causes those who photo op with him to look progressive and enlightened in the public eye of the unofficial capital of our nation's largest blue state, so much the better for them.

You've got to get on his side in public. If you don't like him, just support somebody else more on the down-low, and then when he starts falling behind in the primary you say that you still really like the man on a personal level, would be thrilled to see him get a cabinet spot, but feel an obligation to put your money behind the candidate who the voters are favoring in the name of opposing the war.

Barack will find out who his friends really are in late January and Early February, because I think Clinton will be more efficient in winning the all-important NH Primary, at which point anyone who doesn't really believe in their candidate is going to jump on the bandwagon for the front runner.

i am sure that they (Hollywood) back up Obama.. you can see it in hollywood starting with Will Smith being popularized in movies, last one Seven Pounds very much resembles Obama.. in 2003 movie Head of State - story in a way similar to what has happened now.

This all is happening on a different level; the majority aren't even able to see through these obvious things
