Spielberg Backs Hillary
Posted on Jun 13, 2007
In the latest round of “Divvying Up (Democratic) Hollywood,” presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton emerges triumphant, having landed a very big fish indeed: überdirector Steven Spielberg. A campaign information source for Clinton, HillaryHub.com, confirmed Spielberg’s choice on the website on Wednesday.
“I’ve taken the time to familiarize myself with the impressive field of Democratic candidates and am convinced that Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate to lead us from her first day in the White House,” Spielberg said. “Hillary is a strong leader and is respected the world over. As president, she will bring America back together, rebuild our prestige abroad and ensure our protection here at home.”
Celebrity advocates can be tricky to mobilize in productive ways for political campaigns, but Steven Spielberg is well-respected—and rolling in it—so his support could give Hillary Clinton a major lift.
