Roger Waters Endorses Obama

Not typically known for his political opinions (yes that was a joke), Roger Waters wants us all to vote for Obama, because he thinks Hilary Clinton will invade Iran.

From an article in Gigwise:

“I was so disappointed the other night when the ghastly Hillary got Texas and kept the whole thing going," he told the Independent.

"Please God, let's not have this woman! Hillary will want to make her mark and show that she can be just as good as a male president, and she will fucking invade Iran.

“Trust me. She voted to declare the Iranian Republican Guard a terrorist organisation!"

Despite being ineligible to vote, Waters, who lives in New York, said he would “buy a whole page in The New York Times” in order to “fly Obama's flag”.

“But I would be terribly afraid they'd go, 'This is that pinko shitbag who's attacking our President in time of war',” he added.

Is R.Waters inelligible to vote because he is a Brit or an ex-con?

Whoa. I'm a little surprised Waters is being so irrational and fear mongering to that degree. With his normally sharp wit and keen sense of artistic nuance, he should know better. I frankly can't tell what he is babbling about. Some people dislike Hillary for a variety of reasons, but I don't think even the most vitriolic anti-Hillary person would put her potential Iran policies anywhere on the list. At this point, for Dems, Hillary vs. Obama is largely a matter of personality choice. Their policy positions are basically identical from what I can tell.

I think what gives Obama the edge is that he doesn't have the 'baggage' that Hillary does.
But I'm not sure he can do the job.

He can't vote in the US b/c I think he's still a British citizen. I don't think he ever served time, but prove me wrong...

It does seem like Hillary is the Republican and Obama is the Democrat. I sometimes forget McCain is a candidate.
